How did the Mexican Revolution start?

Amid much criticism, Porfirio Díaz had given an interview in 1908 to journalist James Creelman where he stated that he would not be reelected again. However, he himself ran for president again, won, and decided to imprison Francisco I. Madero, his main opponent.

After regaining his freedom, Madero fled to the United States and presented the Plan of San Luis, in which he called on all Mexicans to take up arms on November 20, 1910 against the Díaz government, with the purpose of to establish democratic elections, return land to peasants and demand labor rights for workers.

Once the fight began, other revolutionary leaders appeared, such as Emiliano Zapata in the southern zone, as well as Francisco ‘Pancho’ Villa, Álvaro Obregón and Pascual Orozco in the north.

Despite the fact that Porfirio Díaz signed his resignation letter in May 1911 and traveled to France, Francisco I. Madero assumed power in a short time, since in February 1913 the “Tragical Ten” occurred, which led to Madero’s resignation and later his murder.

Victoriano Huerta, conspirator of the coup d’état, assumed the power that was formed with the Constitutionalist Army, under the command of Venustiano Carranza, who sought to fight Huerta. In this way, the constituents worked with revolutionary causes, giving rise to the new Constitution of 1917.

Will there be rest?

The holiday throughout the territory of Mexico will be November 20, the day the Mexican Revolution began, one of the most important armed movements in the entire history of the nation. The armed uprising was promoted by Francisco I. Madero in the San Luis Plan, in order to remove Porfirio Díaz from the presidency of the Republic.
