Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Battle of Ciudad Ju rez, or the Second Battle of Ciudad Juarez, took place in April and May 1911 between federal forces loyal to Porfirio D az and rebel forces of Francisco Madero, during the Mexican Revolution. Pascual Orozco and Pancho Villa commanded Madero's army which besieged Ciudad Ju rez, Chihuahua. After two days of fighting the city's garrison surrendered and Orozco and Villa took control of the town. The fall of Ciudad Ju rez to Madero, combined with Zapata's taking of Cuautla in Morelos, convinced President Porfirio D az that he could not hope to defeat the rebels. As a result, D az agreed to the Treaty of Ciudad Ju rez, resigned, and went into exile in France, thus ending the initial stage of the Mexican Revolution.show more
