Revolution:  South of the border.

Today is Revolution Day in Mexico.  The day honors of the overthrow of the liberal General Diaz in 1911 after 35 years in power. 

The coup was led by Francisco Madero a wealthy landowner who was an advocate of social justice.  Two years later Madero was removed from presidency the old-fashioned way, assassination, by another military man, Victoriano Huerta.

Mexico experienced seven coup attempts overall, with the last one in 1920.

Here is Mexico’s map by Colton from 1854.
