Miguel Miramon (1832-1867)

Miguel Miramon was the president of Mexico but was ultimately shot with Emperor Maximilian. Miramon attended the Mexican government's military academy and then began a lifelong military career. He first fought against the U.S. and then, as leader of the reactionary party, against the liberals. Withdrawing to Queretaro, he was one of Maximilian's ablest aides during the siege; the small force was surrounded, starved, and betrayed into surrender. Miramon was taken prisoner, condemned to death, and shot alongside Maximilian.
