" There are few biographies of Huerta, but one strongly asserts that Huerta should not be labeled simply as a counter-revolutionary, arguing that his regime consisted of two distinct periods: from the coup in February 1913 up to October 1913.  Several Catholic newspapers were in circulation during the Madero era, including El País and La Nación, only to be later suppressed under the Victoriano Huerta regime (1913–14). He skillfully managed political conflict and reined in tendencies toward autonomy. However, social inequality remained. General Victoriano Huerta signed the Ciudadela Pact with Diaz to apprehend Madero and give him the presidency of Diaz. He chose to back Ignacio Bonillas, a civilian and political unknown. "Octavio Paz: The Search for Mexican Identity". , Zapata took Chilpancingo in mid-March; he followed this soon afterward with the capture of Acapulco, Iguala, Taxco, and Buenavista de Cuellar. Carranza had consolidated enough power to go forward with the drafting of a new constitution in 1917. The elections were held in 1911, and in a free and fair vote, Madero was overwhelmingly elected president, taking office in November. Regardless, his rule was the most radical phase of social reform following the revolution. The Constitutionalist Army occupied the capital and prevented the entrance of the troops of Villa. ", In late 1910 revolutionary movements broke out in response to Madero's Plan de San Luis Potosí. Historian Friedrich Katz considers Madero's retention of the Federal Army, which was defeated by the revolutionary forces and resulted in Díaz's resignation, "was the basic cause of his fall." "The Church represented a force for reaction, especially in the countryside. Since then it has enshrined the right to education, labor rights, State ownership of the subsoil product and Church-State separation. Gonzales, Michael J.  The Northern revolutionaries fought under the name of the Constitutionalist Army, with Carranza as the "First Chief" (primer jefe).  Although the peasants of Morelos under Zapata had not expanded beyond their local region and parts of the state of Puebla, Carranza sought to eliminate Zapata.  Dynamic equestrian statues of popular revolutionaries Zapata and Villa were erected in their respective strongholds. The question of presidential succession was an issue as early as 1900, when he turned 70.  In 1905 the group of Mexican intellectuals and agitators who had created the Mexican Liberal Party (Partido Liberal de México) drew up a radical program of reform, specifically addressing what they considered to be the worst aspects of the Díaz regime. […] the habit of sleeping in the floor remains, […] diet is limited to beans, tortilla, and chili pepper; clothing is poor". "The Arm and Body of a Revolution: Remembering Mexico's Last Caudillo, Álvaro Obregón" in Lyman L. Johnson, ed. Madero campaigned vigorously for the presidency during this interim period, but revolutionaries who had supported him and brought about Díaz's resignation were dismayed that the sweeping reforms they sought were not immediately instituted. Villa also remained a threat to the Constitutionalists, complicating their relationship with the United States when elements of Villa's forces raided Columbus, New Mexico, in March 1916, prompting the U.S. to launch a punitive expedition into Mexico in an unsuccessful attempt to capture him. He believed that most revolutions fit into 7 stages. "From Porfirismo to the Revolution. Although the National Catholic Party was an opposition party to the Madero regime, "Madero clearly welcomed the emergence of a kind of two party system (Catholic and liberal); he encouraged Catholic political involvement, echoing the exhortations of the episcopate. The Mexican Revolution (Spanish: Revolución Mexicana) was a major revolution, including a sequence of armed struggles, lasting roughly from 1910 to 1920, that transformed Mexican culture and government. , major nationwide armed struggle in Mexico between 1910 and 1920, Huerta Regime, Feb. 1913–July 1914 and civil war, Meeting of the Winners, then civil war 1914–1915, Constitutionalists in Power under Carranza, 1915–1920, The 1917 Constitution, and the last successful coup, Emiliano Zapata and the Revolution in Morelos, Consolidation of the Revolution, 1920–1940, Cultural aspects of the Mexican Revolution, Visual culture: prints, painting, film, photography, Robert McCaa, "Missing millions: the human cost of the Mexican Revolution. Some poor farmers also migrated to the cities and they settled on neighborhoods where the Porfiriato elite used to live. "The Mexican Revolution and photography were intertwined. In 1988, Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas, son of president Lázaro Cárdenas, broke with the PRI, forming an independent leftist party, the Party of the Democratic Revolution, or PRD. Stephanie Creed, Kelcie McLaughlin, Christina Miller, Vince Struble, This page was last edited on 3 December 2020, at 20:35.  During that period, his presidency was only interrupted by that of his close ally, General Manuel González (1880–84), after which Díaz ran for the presidency again and legally served in office until 1911. Díaz attempted the same kind of manipulation he executed with the Mexican political system with business interests, showing favoritism to European interests against those of the U.S., Rival interests, particularly those of the foreign powers with presence in Mexico, further complicated an already complex system of favoritism. Alvaro Matute, "Mexican Revolution: May 1917 – December 1920" in. In mid-April, at the head of 400 irregular troops, he joined the forces commanded by Huerta. Among the foreign photographers were Jimmy Hare, Otis A. Aultman, Homer Scott, and Walter Horne. As the Metro expanded, further stations with names from the revolutionary era opened. Labor had supported the Constitutionalists and Red Battalions had fought against the Zapatistas. Huerta carried "roughly half a million marks in gold with him" as well as paper currency and checks. Usually, through assassination. However, not all of his reforms were completely socialist. Although Zapata was assassinated, the agrarian reforms that were enacted in Morelos were impossible to reverse.  It was his "undeclared intention to step down from the presidency in 1904. He did introduce some progressive reforms, including improved funding for rural schools; promoting some aspects of agrarian reform to increase the amount of productive land; labor reforms including workman's compensation and the eight-hour day; but also the right of the government to intervene in strikes. During the first phase of the revolution, new faces began to influence Mexican society and Francisco Madero emerged as the leader. The Party has been very authoritarian and hierarchical, leaving little room for opposition. In 1970, Metro Revolución opened, with the station at the Monument to the Revolution. Díaz had ruled continuously since 1884. Although Madero had reason to distrust Victoriano Huerta, Madero placed him in charge of suppressing the Mexico City revolt as interim commander. Then slowly, things are put back together and into peace. The Mexican Revolution was brought on by, among other factors, tremendous disagreement among the Mexican people over the dictatorship of President Porfirio Díaz, who, all told, stayed in office for thirty one years.During that span, power was concentrated in the hands of a select few; the people had no power to express their opinions or select their public officials. The Mexican War of Independence (Spanish: Guerra de Independencia de México) was an armed conflict and political process, lasting from 1808 to 1821, resulting in Mexico's independence from Spain.It was not a single, coherent event, but local and regional struggles that occurred within the same time period, and can be considered a revolutionary civil war. The Secretary of Government Pablo Lascuráin assumed the presidency, which in turn appointed Huerta to the same position and resigned, thus remaining with the presidency. , Contemporaneously with Villa's actions, Obregon moved south from Sonora along the Pacific Coast. This was partially caused by Cárdenas' mandate for secular education early in his presidency in 1934. Published corridos often had images of particular revolutionary heroes along with the verses. Image of the Zapata banknote that was previously on Wiki Commons has been deleted. In 1980, two popular heroes of the Revolution were honored, with Metro Zapata explicitly commemorating the peasant revolutionary from Morelos. The United States had concluded that both Villa and Zapata were too radical and hostile to its interests and sided with the moderate Carranza in the factional fighting. Pancho Villa amnestied. Morelos was the only region where land reform was enacted during the years of fighting. Camp, Roderic Ai. Peasants that resisted seizing of their lands were often killed or sold as slaves. He helped change and reform the legal status of women in Mexico. Although villistas and zapatistas were excluded from the Constituent Congress, their political challenge pushed the delegates to radicalize the Constitution, which in turn was far more radical than Carranza himself. Unlike northern Mexico, close to the U.S. border, the Zapatista territory in Morelos did not have access to arms, nor did it play into international politics.  One major result of the revolution was the dissolution of the Federal Army in 1914, which Francisco Madero had kept intact when he was elected in 1911 and Huerta had used to oust Madero. This presentation also uses the American Revolution as an example to explain the stages. Madero is in a dapper suit. The film has been lost, but the story of the film making was interpreted in the HBO scripted film And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself. Many place the end of the Mexican Revolution with the approval of the constitution. They were paid in credit that could be used only at the company store, binding them to the company.. He tried to weaken the powers of the ultra-conservative officer corps, who were not friendly to his regime. An important element the Revolution's legacy is the 1917 Constitution. He ordered the subdivision of six haciendas belonging to Luis Terrazas, which were given to sharecroppers and tenants.. With the outbreak of World War I in Europe in 1914, foreign powers with significant economic and strategic interests in Mexico—particularly the U.S., Great Britain and Germany—made efforts to sway Mexico to their side, but Mexico maintained a policy of neutrality. Duke University Press, 1993. The Mexican Revolution was a complex and bloody conflict which arguably spanned two decades, and in which 900,000 people lost their lives. Despite pressures from the U.S., Obregón flirted with the newly formed USSR. As of mid-April, Mexico City sat undefended before the Villista forces. Knight,"Mexican Revolution: Interpretations", pp. Prior to the elections, General Obregón had returned to Sonora and became a political threat to the civilian Carranza. He continued other reforms pushed by his predecessor, such as land reform and anti-clerical laws to prevent the Catholic Church from influencing the state. However, it was not interested in oppression for its own sake. . Carranza was increasingly unpopular, with his minimal implementation of land reform and his return of confiscated haciendas in the north to their owners alienated peasants seeking land. Armed conflict broke out in northern Mexico, led by Madero, Pascual Orozco, and Pancho Villa, and with support from portions of the middle class, the peasantry, and organized labor, Díaz was forced out. Carranza was an old politico of the Díaz regime, considered a kind of bridge between the old Porfirian order and the new revolutionary. Hoy, Terry.  Constitution of 1917 an enlighten document The current Constitution of 1917 is the first such document in the world to set out social rights, serving as a model for the Weimar Constitution of 1919 and the Russian Constitution of 1918. Díaz re-established the office of vice president in 1906, choosing Ramón Corral. On May 25, 1911, Porfirio Díaz resigned and went into exile in France, where he would die in 1915. Carranza might have counted on Chihuahua Gov. Huerta went into exile in July 1914 and the revolutionary factions sought to decide Mexico's political future in the Convention of Aguascalientes. The government of Álvaro Obregón (1920–24) and his Minister of Education, José Vasconcelos commissioned artists to decorate government buildings of the colonial era with murals depicting Mexico's history. These were, however, quite limited. After 1920, Mexican muralism and printmaking were two major forms of revolutionary art.  After nearly a year the hunt was called off, and Pershing's force returned to the U.S. Carranza asserted Mexican sovereignty and forced the U.S. to withdraw in 1917. There was considerable cultural production during the Revolution itself, including printmaking, music and photography, while in the postrevolutionary era, revolutionary themes in painting and literature shaped historical memory and understanding of the Revolution. The Federal Army, while large, was increasingly an ineffective force with aging leadership and troops dragooned into service.  Carranza fled to Guerrero but was killed or committed suicide fleeing from Mexico City to Veracruz. Villa was assassinated in July 1923. They led a revolt against Carranza under the Plan of Agua Prieta.  Huerta was to become provisional president following the resignations of Madero and his vice president, José María Pino Suárez. Whenever politics were unsuccessful Diaz utilized rurales, an armed police militia directly under his control to expand influence by seizing land from rural peasants. It is not by chance that the party used the word "Revolution" in its name, challenging the Institutional Revolutionary Party's appropriation of the Mexican Revolution. " Porfirio Díaz had successfully centralized power during his long presidency.  When the revolutionaries' attempt to reach political agreement failed, Mexico plunged into a civil war (1914–15). "Order and Progress" were the watchwords of his rule.  Government suppression of strikes was not unique to Mexico, with parallel occurrences both in the United States and Western Europe.  The army opened the sociopolitical system and the leaders in the Constitutionalist faction, particularly Álvaro Obregón and Plutarco Elías Calles, controlled the central government for more than a decade after the military phase ended in 1920.
