Jonathan Pacheco and Melisa Gonzales History IB Outline #5

Thesis: The Mexican Revolution kicked off in 1910 and was led by either revolutionaries, those who called for political revolution, or reformers, those who called for political and social reform. Due to their charisma and boldness, challenging all aspects of Mexican life, Madero, Huerta, Carranza, Obregon, Calles and Cardenas can be considered reformers. On the other hand, Zapata and Villa are both revolutionaries because although they pushed the issue of land reform, their means of reaching those reforms was by overthrowing political systems that denied them the rights they fought for.
