Description
Historical text from the accompanying booklet reads as: El dictador sale con destino a Europa, a bordo del "Ipiranga". El pueblo encuentra en Madero al conductor de sus destinos, y la reacción mexicana, o sea los favoritos del régimen derrotado, pretende en León de la Barra provocar la resurrección del dictador, quien, por mandato de la Revolución triunfante, debía salir de la patria para radicarse en un país extranjero, en donde murió unos cuantos años después. Alberto Morales Jimenez. Translation: The Dictator sails to Europe aboard the Ipiranga. The people see Madero as the leader of their destiny and the Mexican reactionary forces favored by the defeated regime tried to stage a comeback with León de la Barra as dictator, who, by mandate of the victorious Revolution was forced to leave the mother land to settle in a foreign country where he died some years later.
