From 1910 to 1920 the Mexican Revolution captured world attention as Pancho Villa led military attacks on Juarez, Mexico, across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas. Villa and Mexican revolutionary leaders met in El Paso to plan and equip their armies. Refugees from the battle crowded into El Paso as hundreds of international journalists and photographers filled El Paso hotels to report on the revolution. It was one of the most historic conflicts in North America, and spectators in El Paso sometimes got shot. See many historic photos from the Mexican Revolution and walk with El Paso historians Leon Metz and Fred Morales to learn how events in El Paso were crucial to the revolution, and where Pancho Villa liked to hang out in downtown El Paso.
