Historical Notes: This document likely comes from the early 1830's when Colombia was establishing itself as a newly independent nation. José María Obando supported Francisco de Paula Santander, Simón Bolívar’s primary opponent. When Bolívar established a dictatorship in 1828, Obando joined with future president José Hilario López to lead a rebellion in Cauca. Obando briefly served as Vice-President between 1831-1832, leaving his mark on the 1832 Colombian constitution that upheld Federalist values and formerly named Santander as President.
