Mexican Revolution

The Mexican Revolution, also known as the Mexican Civil War, started in November 1910 and lasted until 1929. It was fueled by the public's desire for economic and social reforms, and targeted the corrupt Mexican dictator Porfirio Diaz, the wealthy, the Catholic Church and foreign capitalists. It is not to be confused with the Mexican War for Independence (from Spain) which happened 100 years earlier.
