    One heroic deed always remembered was in the Battle of La Trinidad (year 1856), where he single handily recovered a cannon that was in enemy hands, thus saving many Costa Rican comrades lives.

    Characteristic of bravery and courage in war, both in 1856, in 1892, during the government of Rafael Yglesias Castro, where he was declared a National Hero, which is why he received a medal and a pension of 60 pesos in his favor.

     This declaration as a hero was not completed by law, so the Legislative Assembly of Costa Rica proceeded to ratify it in 2013, taking into account his date of birth.
