Description:
General Emiliano Zapata was a leader of the Mexican Revolution in the early 20th century (1910 - 1920). He commanded the Liberation Army of the South while Pancho Villa commanded the Liberation Division of the North.

In 1919, Col. Jesus Guajardo invited Zapata to a meeting, under the guise of Guajardo's (erroneous) desire to defect to Zapata's army where Guajardo and his soldiers shot and killed Zapata. The photo here shows Zapata and his staff during the early part of the Mexican Revolution. (Zapata is seated at the desk, on the right.)
