A noble figure in the history of México is Felipe Angeles who represented the sentiment of the Mexican people and lived through the political and social turmoil generated by the revolution, and was convinced that the evils of government must be destroyed. He spent his formative years at the Military College at Chapultepec, later became director of that institution and he rose to the rank of brigadier general in the federal army. His vast culture, mathematical studies, and teaching labors caused Francisco I. Madero to name him the man to support him on his presidential road. Fate led him to unite with Pancho Villa in several memorable battles against Huerta and finally he sought peace, concord and reconciliation of all Méxicans by returning to Chihuahua where he was betrayed, arrested at the order of Carranza, tried by courts marshal and sentenced to be executed. On November 17, 1919 he died before a firing squad for the crime of rebellion.
