A Mexican Revolution Photo History: original photographs of the 1910-1928 revolution accompanied by a narrative that explains who did what, to whom,when, and why.  Photographed over 100 years ago by more than 480 roaming photographers in Mexico and the U.S., pictures show how Mexico was convulsed by a civil war that killed an estimated million and a half people, and caused another million and a half Mexicans of all classes to immigrate north to the United States. This history singles out events that continue to affect all Americans and Mexico's people.  It relies on historians and public domain pictures housed at: 

  • The Casaola Collection in Mexico City and in Pachuca
  • The Library of Congress
  • The John Davidson Wheelan Collection of the Cushing Memorial Library at Texas A&M University
A Mexican Revolution Photo History theorizes why Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata failed to establish another form of government following triumphant marches with 40,000 and 30,000 troops into Mexico City in 1914.  Documents the Flores Magon brothers' first call for revolution in 1905, James Creelman's complete 1908 interview of President Porfirio Diaz, Francisco Madero's "Plan of San Luis Potosi," as translated by the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations in 1913, and ends with Alvaro Obregon's 1928 assassination.Paperback and eBook print formats on the major figures of the revolution.  The Epilogue highlights refugees who immigrated to the United States following Diaz's ouster.  Today, millions of Americans claim ancestors who crossed the border into the U.S. during this turbulent period.  Consider recovering family ties lost or weakened by Mexico's revolution.
