Villa and Zapata: A CV of the Mexican Revolution by Frank McLynn
Product Description
Recounting the decade of bloody events that followed the eruption of the Mexican Revolution in 1910, Villa and Zapata explores the regional, international, cultural, racial, and economic strife that made the rebels Francisco (Pancho) Villa and Emiliano Zapata legends. Throughout this volume drama colludes with history, in a tale of two social outlaws who became legendary national heroes, yet—despite their triumph and only meeting, in 1914, in the Mexican capital—failed to make common cause and ultimately fell victim to intrigues more treacherous than their own. 16 pages of black-and-white photographs bring this gripping narrative to life. "McLynn ... tells it so well ... you can hear the strains of he Mexican patriotic standard ‘Zacatecas' as you read it."—Austin American-Statesman "An admirably clear account of the chaos of revolution, its rivalries and bloody struggles...."—The Spectator "Informative and insightful ... feels less like a history than a great story, as exciting as a Saturday serial Western."—Publishers Weekly

ON THE STREETS OF LAREDO!

Due to VERY foggy conditions yesterday, we left for a trip to Laredo, about 160 miles south if us, around 10AM. Traveling down I-35, there are many large cattle ranches with fancy gates. (I asked if there was a ‘picture book of gates’, like our books on out-houses, but they tell me “No”. Someone should do this. n the morning of February 22, 1898, Indians and white men engaged in a “battle” for control of Laredo, Texas. The “battle” was fiercely fought, but to no avail. In the end, the defenders fell and the mayor presented the key of the city to the Great Chief Sachem as a sign of unconditional surrender. The Great Chief in turn presented the key to the lovely Princess Pocahontas (must have been a common Indian name. ” Thus was born the annual celebration of George Washington’s Birthday in Laredo, Texas. This has now evolved into a month-long event and is the We also visited the Republic of the Rio Grande Museum. In January 1840 the Republic of the Rio Grande was proclaimed and Laredo was named it’s capitol… in November 1840 , after battles with Mexico over land disputes, the Republic was no more. Zapata lost his head in one of the disputes. Source: The Meandering Mainiacs
