This paper studies attempts to political integration made in Northeastern Antioquia by political leaders in the first half of the 19[th] century. It argues that the attempt to extend centralization networks led by political leaders in order to implement greater social, political, and administrative control was hindered by mayors and other local officials, as well as by those interested in preserving certain liberties in order to protect individual interests. These conflicts, when framed within the institutional structure, show simultaneously the expansion of the State and the persistence of the factors which limited its local establishment.
