Collection: Mexican American/Chicano History: The Mexican Revolution
Description: Daniel Carrillo was born in Guanajuato where his family lived and worked on a large farm. They worked for the wealthy man who owned the farm. When the Mexican Revolution began, Carrillo did not approve of the violence that accompanies it and did not live that it pitted brother against brother. He emigrated to CA where he found jobs including some picking oranges where he had to work nine hours a day. During the 1930s, Carrrillo found it difficult to find agricultural work and began working on a railroad. Other Mexican emigrants in Los Angeles were pressured to return to Mexico. In CA, Carillo learned to read English better than he spoke it, but his children were fluent in both English and Spanish.
