Regarding House of Clemente Ugalde. The Cristero War (1926–1929), also known as La Cristiada, was an armed struggle in central-western Mexican states against the secularist, anti-Catholic, and anticlerical policies of the Mexican government.

Morrow brokered negotiations between the Calles government and the Catholic Church. The government made concessions, the Church withdrew its support for the Cristero fighters and the conflict ended nominally in 1929. It can be seen as part of the events in the struggle between the Church and the Mexican State dating back to the 19th century with the War of Reform, but it can also be interpreted as the last major peasant uprising in Mexico following the end of the military phase of the Mexican Revolution in 1920.
