The humiliation of defeat left liberals and conservatives more divided than ever. The next ten years brought escalating strife that finally unleashed a civil war which, from 1858 to 1867, surpassed the death and destruction wrought by the struggle for independence. When it was over, the liberals emerged with a republican constitution and an authoritarian political culture. This set the stage for the final campaign to eradicate banditry, but none of this was yet apparent in 1848. As Mexico emerged from the wreckage of war with the United States, the liberals returned to power under consecutive presidents José Joaquín Herrera and Mariano Arista.

Profits were marginal, and inadequate financing and credit made estate ownership quite unstable. Economic insecurity among the provincial elites also generated rivalry within federalist ranks.

Trade and commerce were at a standstill, and the scarcity of credit delayed economic recovery until the 1830s.
