Mexican Revolution Was a Big Mess

The Revolucion Mexicana started in 1910 and it lasted way too long, until the 1920 when it was officially over, however unofficially it ended few years later.

This multi-sided-brutal civil war clamed between 1, 000, 000 and 2, 000, 000 lives and it caused a lot of suffering to tens of million of people. The Mexican economy suffered a lot and billions of dollars were lost.

The revolution started as armed revolt against the dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz under the leadership of Francisco I Madero. However, when Madero overthrew General Diaz and became the Mexican president himself in 1911 the revolution was far from over.

Madero was a good politician but he wasnt a good dictator and he gave too much democracy to his people too soon. He was not capable of creating the stability and he was executed by the orders of the contra revolutionary General Victoriano Huerta.

General Huerta was a very good dictator and he gave no democracy to his people what so ever. However, that wasnt the solution either because the 1913 was the beginning of the most violent period of revolution.

Huerta was a Mexican president for less than a year and in 1914 he was exiled.

Venustiano Carranza was a new Mexican president and was desperately trying to bring some order and stability. However that was very difficult to achieve at the time, due to the popularity of the revolutionary leaders such as Emilio Zapata and Pancho Vila and their armies.

Carranza was a great politician and true patriot however his reward for that was a betrayal by his own men the he trusted with his life. On May 21, 1920 he was executed by the forces of General Radolfo Hererro.

Now you can understand why we say that Mexican revolution was a big mess and that in fact it was everything but a revolution.
