Regarding Esteban Coronado. As a young man Esteban Coronado fought against the United States invasion in Chihuahua in 1847 at the Battle of Sacramento. Later he joined the Liberal forces of Benito Juarez against the Conservatives in the Reform War (Guerra de la Reforma, 1857-1861). During the battle of Tepic he was seriously wounded in the leg. Doctors told him that he could have treatment that would eventually heal his leg after a lengthy recovery, or an amputation that would put him back in the fight in a few months. He replied that "I need my leg, but the country needs my time." ("Mi pierna le hará falta al general Coronado, pero mi tiempo le hará falta a la Patria.") He did not survive the amputation.
