Description: (In Spanish) The Mexican Revolution began in 1910 and opponents of the regime of Porfirio Diaz organized in various parts of the country to fight, first against the Mexican Army, and later among themselves for control of the country and its government. In northern Mexico, adjacent to the United States, the various revolutionary factions sought the official support of the United States government and monetary and material support from private residents. So the border was a focus of fighting and organizing. Some of the narrators in this series spent time in that area and describe their experiences.
