1875 · The First Missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Age 2
The first missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints entered Mexico in two groups. The first group went into Sonora and baptized the first 5 members in Latin America. The second group went down to Mexico City and handed out translated verses of the Book of Mormon. The missionaries worked throughout the nation until 1889 and baptized many. Because of the government’s views of polygamy, missionaries weren't allowed to teach and baptize while the mission was closed from 1889 to 1901. The church has since increased from the initial 5 to 1.5 Million members.
1896 · The Yaqui Uprising
Age 23
The Yaqui Uprising was a conflict that was fought between the residents of Sonora and Arizona over several days. It started as an agreement of the Native Americans, in the state of Sonora, and Lauro Aguirre to start by capturing the customs house in Nogales. This confrontation was one of the last battles during the American Indian Wars. Several people were killed and wounded but was a win in the Revolution of Mexico.
