  • Revolution Day Observed (paid holiday)
    There is misconception that the Revolution of 1910 was started to overthrow Porfirio Diaz.
    In fact he had abdicated and fled the country. Mexico had had one of few reasonably democratic elections and elected Maduro as President. Unfortunately for the conservatives, Maduro was a lot more liberal than they thought and actually had very reasonable plans for a more democratic Mexico and they wanted him out.
    They approached the US ambassador to ensure that they had his backing. When assured, they arrested Maduro and his VP who were shot trying to “escape”.
    General Carranza, I believe, was installed and that truly initiated the revolution
