After being forced to witness the execution of his wife and sons, he was mutilated, drawn and quartered, and beheaded The revolution continued until the Spanish government issued a general pardon of the insurgents. He was born into a period of humiliation in which he witnessed the ruthless exploitation of his people, confining them to lives of hard labor and poverty. direct descendant of the last Incan Emperor, Tupac Amaru.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
