2. The Mixtón War - the 'revolt' or 'uprising' mentioned in the marker text. "By the viceroy's order men, women, and children were seized and executed, some by cannon fire, some torn apart by dogs, and others stabbed. The reports of the excessive violence against indigenous civilians caused the Council of the Indies to undertake a secret investigation into the conduct of the viceroy."
