Description
Historical text from the accompanying booklet reads as: El 10 de abril de 1919 es una de las fechas luctuosas de la Revolución Mexicana. En Chinameca, Morelos, víctima de una celada, cayó acribillado a tiros el gran general revolucionario, Emiliano Zapata. Después de muerto, su obra se agiganta con el tiempo y es ejemplo a seguir por todos los hombres que anhelan la resolución definitiva de los problemas que agobian a los núcleos de población campesina de la República Mexicana. Alberto Morales Jimenez. Translation: 10 April 1919, was one of the saddest days of the Mexican Revolution. The great revolutionary general, Emiliano Zapata was ambushed and gunned down in Chinameca, Morelos. After his death and the passage of time his work gained more significance and is a good example to follow by all who yearn for a definitive solution to the oppression of the rural population in Mexico.
