Juan Facundo Quiroga.
Manuscript letter to his wife Dolores, September 16, 1831.
Before entering battle, Quiroga asks his wife to sell everything he owns to educate their children if he does not return.
Portrayed as a barbarian by Domingo Sarmiento, this document clearly shows that Facundo cared about his family and understood the importance of a good education - hardly, the actions or beliefs of a barbarian.
