If President Woodrow Wilson believed in moral diplomacy why did he send American forces into Mexico to pursue Francisco 'Pancho' Villa?
Is Pancho Villa an American hero?
Answer 1: Pancho Villa was a Mexican Revolutionary General and hero to his people. Since his raid on Columbus in 1916, Villa was neither friend nor hero to the US. Answer 2: Yes. Pancho Villa is known world wide, and treated like a hero everywhere. He is most commonly known in the United States as a hero by United States Citizens (Americans). It might be really awkward that Pancho Villa murdered Americans, and still, Americans now days love him and treat him like a hero. The reason for that is that Pancho Villa was like a Mexican Robinhood. he stole from the middle class, and the rich and gave it to the poor. He also rebelled against evil people in Mexico and always protected Mexico from American attacks.

Did the United States attack Pancho Villa after his attack on Columbus New Mexico?
where did pancho villa live Yes. General John "Black Jack" Pershing, a hero of the Spanish-American War, led a US expeditionary force into Mexico to destroy Pancho Villa. There was fighting, and a young lieutenant named George Patton made a name for himself by killing an enemy general, but the US Army was slowed by the difficult terrain. Pershing had trucks, but there were few roads, and most of his supplies moved by mule train. Pancho Villa had little worry that Pershing would catch him. With World War 1 coming, the expedition was recalled, and Pershing later became General of the Armies, the only general in the history of the US Army to attain this rank. Pancho Villa later retired from his revolutionary endeavors, and he was assassinated by fellow Mexicans.
