The French intervention in Mexico is far more familiar than the Dominican war, but it is too often reduced to a pat story of French intervention and Mexican victimhood. As Erika Pani demonstrates, the idea of restoring Mexico to monarchy had been nurtured by Mexican Conservatives for decades. Their dreams of monarchical stability revived with the advent of liberal reforms during the 1850s. Conservative designs for the restoration of order and progress in Mexico became possible to realize once the U.S. Civil War suddenly opened the way for Napoleon III and his abiding interest in Mexico as the site for his Grand Design to regenerate the Latin race in the American hemisphere.
