Today in the Sobel Timeline: April 14

On April 14, 1806, the Mexican Civil War began when a detachment of Federalist soldiers surrounded the town of Cuautla in the Province of Mexico, while searching for several priests who were leaders of the Clericalist guerrillas in the area. After entering the town, the soldiers were ambushed by Clericalist guerrillas, suffering 42 dead and wounded. The Mexican Civil War would continue for the next eleven years.
