The same year he injured his leg father died from a severe illness. He learned the merchant trade which was his father´s occupation, and has his own trade post, but specialized in Mexican Law.

He was happy about there being a new trade port on the coast of Texas at La Bahia, because he thought he could open a new trade post to help raise money for his family, which did not work because the other merchants would not let him sell near them, because, they thought he would out-sell them, which he did.

Rafael Trujillo was trained by the U.S Marines which enabled him to join the Dominican National Police. He rised to power while in the Dominican National Police during United States occupation in the Dominican Republic which later on became the National Army on May of 1928.

During the time of the independence of Texas, Mexico was ruled by the dictator General Antonio López de Santa Anna.
At that time, only about 75,000 Mexican citizens lived north of the Rio Grande. As a result, U.S. forces led by Stephen W. Kearny and Robert F. Stockton were able to conquer those lands. Taylor advancing, and captured Monterrey in September. With the losses adding up, Mexico turned to old standby General Antonio López de Santa Anna, the strongman who had been living in exile in Cuba.

As the Spanish colonial system was dismantled in the 19th century, power transitioned from Peninsulares to wealthy Criollos, and the gleaming concern of the “Indian Problem” prevailed among the indigenous population. The conquistadors conquered Latin American and among them the Inca Empire, a great empire that brought under its governance several distinct indigenous groups.

Jose Carlos Mariátegui, a native of Peru, became a revolutionary force for indigenous people of South America, specifically Peru in the early 20th century.
