Description
Historical text from the accompanying booklet reads as: El Plan de San Luis Potosí fue ampliamente distribuido en toda la República. Miles y miles de peones acasillados le prestaron inmediatamente su adhesión. El dictador quedó sorprendido de la inusitada reacción popular y quiso hacer creer a la opinión pública que Madero encabezaba únicamente a un insignificante grupo de revoltosos. Estaba rotundamente equivocado. Todo el pueblo estaba levantado en armas. Alberto Morales Jimenez.
