Guerra Federalista CentralistaEn enero de 1847, ocurrió el segundo acontecimiento que marcaría la casta heroica del pueblo vallisoletano. En enero de 1846 Yucatán se proclamó por segunda vez independiente de la República Mexicana en defensa del federalismo y de su soberanía. Pugnas políticas internas entre políticos de Mérida y Campeche se incrementaron al reconocer la legislatura yucateca (Barbachanista en su mayoría) al general Antonio López de Santa Anna como "jefe y caudillo de la heroica empresa de regeneración de la Republica". Esto ocasionó el levantamiento armado del ayuntamiento de Campeche en octubre de 1846. En el oriente, Valladolid era aún un bastión del movimiento Barbachanista; sin embargo algunas poblaciones estaban ya en poder de los revolucionarios.La plaza de Valladolid fue asediada el 11 de enero de 1847 por las tropas de D. Antonio Trujeque, comandante de la facción revolucionaria. El 13 de enero Trujeque y sus tropas - la mayoría integrada por indios mayas - se posesionaron a sus filas todos los vecinos de los barrios. La lucha ya era desigual entre 300 hombres defensores y 3,000 sitiadores. El sitio duró hasta el 15 de enero cuando Trujeque ordenó el asalto final. El Teniente Coronel Venegas, el defensor de la ciudad, fue tomado prisionero y conducido al barrio de Sisal.
Esta tragedia representó solo el preludio de una mayor, que se extendería por toda la península, y que se iniciaría en Valladolid en julio del mismo año: La Guerra de Castas. English:Centralist Federalist WarIn January 1847 the second event to denote the heroic breed of the Vallisoletan people took place. In January 1846 Yucatán proclaimed itself independent from the Mexican Republic, defending federalism and its sovereignty. Internal political strife amongst politicians in Mérida and Campeche increased when Yucatan Parliament (mostly Barbachanist) recognized General Antonio López de Santa Ana as "chief and leader of the heroic enterprise of Republic´s regeneration." This caused the armed uprising of the Campeche city council in October 1846. In the east, Valladolid was still a bastion of the Barbachanist movement, however, some towns were already in revolutionary hands. Valladolid was sieged on January 11, 1847 by troops of Don Antonio Trujeque, commander of the revolutionary fraction. The 13th of January, Trujeque and his troops, mostly Mayan Indians, took the neighborhood of Sisal and incorporated all neighbors into their ranks. The fight was already uneven between 300 defenders and 3,000 besiegers. The siege lasted until January 15, when Trujeque ordered the final assault. Lieutenant Colonel Venegas, the city defender, was taken prisoner and conducted to Sisal. The tragedy meant to be only the beginning of a bigger one that would extend throughout the whole peninsula that would being in Valladolid in July of the same year: The Caste War.
