Regarding José M. Arteaga. José María Arteaga (b. August 7, 1827, Mexico City - d. October 21, 1865 Uruapan, Michoacán) was a member of the Mexican military and a politician. Although he began his career as a tailor, with the outbreak of the Mexican-American War in 1846 he joined the military. He fought in the Reform Wars and against the Second French Mexican Empire. He was executed by an order of Maximilian, together with General Salazar, Coronels Jesús Díaz and Trinidad Villagómez, and Captain Juan González. He also served as governor of Jalisco and Querétaro. Interestingly, the marker chooses to remember his non-military importance when he worked to promote public, secular education.
