Title: Santa Amalia (Badajoz), un pueblo de colonos del siglo XIX
Author: Cruz Villalón, María
Abstract: En 1825, el labrador D. Antonio López Morcillo, en representación de otros labradores y vecinos de la localidad de Don Benito, todos de condición humilde, solicitaba a la Monarquía la dotación de tierras de labor y la creación de un poblado nuevo. Este acontecimiento no resulta un hecho aislado en su momento ni presenta novedad si consideramos los precedentes inmediatos y más significativos del siglo XVIII, ligados a la reflexión sobre la problemática agraria de España, propia de la política borbónica de la segunda mitad del 700. Varios factores desfavorables, entre ellos el poder de la Mesta, habían ido deteriorando el funcionamiento de la agricultura, de manera que el declive del campo había propiciado el abandono de núcleos poblados y de áreas rurales.In 1825, the farmer D. Antonio López Morcillo, representing other farmers and neighbors of the town of Don Benito, all of humble condition, requested the Monarchy to provide land for labor and the creation of a new town. This is not an isolated event at the time or presents novelty if we consider the immediate and most significant precedents of the 18th century, linked to reflection on the agrarian problem of Spain, typical of the Bourbon policy of the second half of the 18th century. Several factors unfavorable, among them the power of the Mesta, had been deteriorating the operation of agriculture, so that the decline of the countryside had led to the abandonment of populated villages and rural areas.
