Francisco Villa

This exhibition tells how at the end of 1910 Abraham González, the head of the revolutionaries in Chihuahua, made contact with Villa to invite him to join his cause. Gonzalez's intention was to incorporate the movement persons experienced in the management of the weapons, brave and knowledgeable of the area where the battles would take place. Villa demonstrated in a short time a great skill for war. For his outstanding results at the beginning of the Revolution, Madero granted Villa the rank of colonel, he formed his own army and contributed in a definitive way to the triumph of the revolutionary movement. Born in Durango, his real name was José Doroteo Arango Arámbula, better known as Pancho Villa. In this hall we will learn more about this important character, seen by some as a hero and by others as a villain, his name would be used as a symbol, banner and inspiration of a number of social struggles within and outside of Mexico.
