General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna was the opposing general in the Mexican American War. One thing to note is that he was a collector of Napoleonic artifacts which earned him the nickname Napoleon of the West.  However, Santa Anna influenced the Mexican American War by purposely "losing" to the Americans so he could be allowed back into Mexico by U.S. blockades and in exchange to sell the territory being fought over once the war was over.
