Age 13
Tras un prolongado período de guerras civiles, entre 1853 y 1860 se formó una república federal con el nombre de República Argentina. Mediante guerras contra los pueblos mapuche, tehuelche, ranquel, wichi y kom, conocidas como Conquista del Desierto y Conquista del Chaco, la República Argentina tomó posesión de las llanuras chaqueña y pampeana y de la Patagonia oriental, conformando su territorio actual, el octavo más extenso del mundo. En 1853 se dicta la Constitución Nacional Argentina. Entre 1862 y 1930 transcurrió un largo período de estabilidad constitucional, en el que debido a una gran ola migratoria proveniente sobre todo de Italia y España, la población creció cinco veces más rápido que el mundo.
Age 19

Juan Perón rises to power.

Name Meaning

Some characteristic forenames: Spanish Jose, Juan, Luis, Carlos, Manuel, Jesus, Miguel, Rafael, Francisco, Angel, Ramon, Jorge.Spanish: topographic name from vega ‘fertile plain or lowland; water meadow’ (of pre-Roman origin, probably originally denoting irrigated land), or a habitational name from any of numerous places called (La) Vega. Compare De la Vega and De Vega .History: Surname Vega is most famous for the Spanish playwright, poet, and novelist Félix Lope de Vega y Carpio (1562–1635). But another notable bearer of this surname was not Spanish: Jurij Vega (1754–1802) was a Slovenian mathematician, physicist, and artillery officer of the Austrian army, author of Thesaurus Logarithmorum Completus ‘Treasury of all Logarithms’ (first edition published in 1794, 90th edition in 1924), after whom the crater Vega on the Moon is named. His surname, which he adopted as an adult, was neither Spanish nor Slovenian: it was an altered form of his original surname Veha (from veha ‘lingerer’ or from a homonymous word meaning ‘bung’, i.e. the stopper in the bunghole of a cask, by extension ‘drunkard’), of which he was the last known male bearer.
