DISTANT NEIGHBORS:  The U.S. and the Mexican Revolution

Francisco Madero and his advisors, 1911

Although Francisco Madero became the head of the Mexican Revolution, he was supported subtantially by a group of men in the state of Chihuahua.  Foremost among these was Pascual Orozco, who managed to recruit a sizeable group of men to fight under the banner of the Anti-Reelectionists.  This photo taken in El Paso, Texas, shows the leaders of the revolution.  They include José María Pino Suárez (#1) who became Vice-President under Madero, Venustiano Carranza (#3) who led the Constitutionalists to victory, Francisco “Pancho” Villa (#10), Emilio Vázquez Gómez, who had been promised the Vice Presidency (#4), Francisco Madero (#5), and, of course, Pascual Orozco (#9).

Aunque Francisco Madero se convirtió en el líder de la Revolución Mexicana, él estaba siendo considerablemente apoyado por un grupo de hombres del estado de Chihuahua, siendo el más destacado Pascual Orozco, quien pudo reclutar un buen número de hombres para luchar bajo la bandera de los anti-reeleccionistas. Estos incluyen José María Pino Suárez (#1), que fue vice-presidente bajo Madero, Venustiano Carranza (#3), que llevó a los Constitucionalistas a la victoria, Francisco “Pancho” Villa (#10), Dr. Francisco Vázquez Gómez, a quien le habían prometido la vice-presidencia (#4), Francisco Madero (#5) y, por supuesto, Pascual Orozco (#9).
