description

The photograph shows revolutionary leader Francisco I. Madero with Captain Maximo Castillo in their headquarter during the Battle of Juarez. Castillo (1864-1919) had joined the revolutionary forces to fight the dictatorship of Mexican President Porfirio Diaz. He was the boss of Madero's escort. In 1913, when Madero was President, he broke with him because he felt that Madero could not realize his promises and instead, joined Emiliano Zapata in his revolt against Madero. Later, when he fled he was captured in the United States and put into prison on Fort Bliss, El Paso. After his release, he found exile in Cuba, where he died.
Francisco I. Madero (1873-1913) is seen as the as the father of the Mexican Revolution. With his “Anti-Reelectionist” party he challenged Porfirio Diaz. The obvious manipulations of the elections in 1910 (Madero was put into prison on a falsified charge) led to the gathering of rebels and the Battle of Juarez as first stage of the revolution. In its consequence Porfirio Diaz had to resign and Madero became new President. He was assassinated in 1913.
