Curator's Choice Lecture Series: Atencion Gringo - Pancho Villa & the Mexican Revolution

Saturday, February 3, 2018

Don't miss the latest in our Curator's Choice Lecture Series: The American West in Fact and Fiction. The latest presentation "Pancho Villa the Mexican Revolution" explains how the people and events that shaped the American West extend beyond the borders of the United States. A notable example is the Mexican Revolution, an armed conflict that engulfed America’s southern neighbor from roughly 1910 to 1920. Government instability and shifting alliances in Mexico also impacted the United States, and when the town of Columbus, New Mexico, was invaded by the forces of Pancho Villa in 1916, the war literally came to the West.
