4/29/10 Globe history Period 6 Emiliano Zapata and pancho villa Emiliano Zapata and pancho villa were revolutionaries in the revolution of Mexico many years ago. There were revolutionaries fighting for freedom and for the people of Mexico .stealing from the rich and giving to the poor for that they were called bandits in many people eyes there were revolutionaries. Were they bandits or were they just trying to hold on to the one thing they call home from the grip of dictation? The revolution all started because the people were being treated and badly and from there the revolution stared. Two of the main revolutionary formed for the people during the revolution.
The Mexican Revolution of 1910 was a chaotic time of class warfare, gruella battles, and presidential chaos, but three consecutive presidents set and maintained an atmosphere of instability and revoltion. Porfirio Díaz was an awful tyrant whose oligarchal reign first caused thoughts of revolution. Next, Franciso I. Madero tried to fix Díaz’s mistakes, but he found himself caught between two radical groups, and his struggles to strike a balance made his administration unstable. Finally, it was Victoriano Huerta whose Porfirian policies incensed the rebels so much that they rose up and caused massive civil war. The man who started it all was Porfirio Díaz.
Last but not least he was shot in the leg, sentenced to death, escaped twice from prison, led a successful one-day revolution, and became the leader of his country mostly while still in college. He is none other than Saddam Hussein, President of the Republic of Iraq, the one who killed his own people and started a war with the United States. These people were the most horrible people who ever to live on the face of the earth, because they had too much power in their grasp. Adolf Hitler is an Austrian-German born in April 20 1889. As a child they moved from one place to another because of the work of his father.
Mexico was in ruins after the Mexican American war and for a while remained in hot water, because of the economic struggles and the violent attacks that were occurring between others who were in search of prospering. In my opinion, the Mexican War brought much decrease of power to the Mexican society. Desperate for money, Mexico seriously needed a settlement and the conclusion was selling most of their land to the United States of America for a total amount of 15 million dollars (pg. 101). After not only losing a huge amount of land to the United States of America, many Mexicans such as the gold diggers and even New Mexicans that had already been residing in American territory had to face problems with their own civil rights and citizenship (pg.103, pg.104).
The Mexican revolution was payed for with two-million lives; Madero, Diaz, Huerta, Carranza were all vile dictators that led the people they swore to protect to the slaughter. But General Zapata was there as well, and his integrity never gave way, nor did his morals falter, he was the only man loyal to the agrarian revolution of Mexico. He was uncompromising in his willingness to fight for his people, and in his demands for them to own their own lands. He risked his own life on the battlefield, unlike the others. And perhaps even more difficult, stood up to his brother on the point of peasant land ownership.
Drug trafficking, in years past, have been very present in countries like Cuba, where drug lords attempted to run the country. Through drug cartels, as mentioned earlier, groups of people try to sell these illegal drugs in attempt to gain money and power. However, these type of cartels are very dangerous as the affect the lives of individuals. More recently, Mexico has been heavily hit by the drug trafficking epidemic, and this has caused an ongoing war that seems almost impossible to end. Living the United States, one can easily forget how great a right it is to practice free speech.
 After prolonged struggles, its representatives produced the Mexican Constitution of 1917. The Revolution is generally considered to have lasted until 1920, although the country continued to have sporadic, but comparatively minor, outbreaks of warfare well into the 1920s. The Cristero War of 1926 to 1929 was the most significant relapse of bloodshed. Porfirio Diaz’s rule After Benito Juárez's death in 1872, PorfirioDíaz wanted to take over as Mexico's leader. As allies the two men had fought against the French in the Battle of Puebla, but once Juárez rose to power Díaz tried to unseat him.
The plan was part of a larger conspiracy intended to rally the remaining Confederate troops to continue fighting. Booth had two accomplices, Lewis Powell and George Atzerodt, who had plotted to kill Secretary of State William H. Seward and Vice President Andrew Johnson respectively. Booth’s plan was to simultaneously strike down the top 3 in command of the Union government in order to throw it into disarray. Booth succeeded in his part of the plan by shooting President Lincoln while he was watching Our American Cousin at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. Lincoln died the next morning. Powell only managed to wound Secretary of State Seward and Vice President Johnson was
Then Caesar and Pompey got into a big fight. Pompey lost. When he tried to run away to Egypt in 48 B.C., he was assassinated. But Caesar still had a problem: Pompey's sons were determined to avenge their father's death and overthrow Caesar. So Caesar tracked down Pompey's sons in Spain and stomped them out at the Battle of Munda in 45 B.C.
Germany between 1918-1919 was in chaos, people were starving, the Kaiser had fled, Bands of soldiers called ‘Freikorps’ refused to disband and formed private armies. In March, 1920, there was a rebellion – The Kapp Putsch. Their arm was to set up a new government as the rebels were angry at them for signing the Treaty of Versailles. The right-wing nationalist Dr Wolfgang Kapp took over Berlin. Nationalist terror groups assassinated 356 government politicians.
