Gran marcha triunfal : coro general- Panel 1.

Artist: José Guadalupe Posada (Mexican, 1851–1913). Shows Francisco I. Madero riding on the horse. With Zapata standing by his side holding the flag of Mexico. It belongs to the broadsheets category of Posada's print. Francisco Madero rose to become the most popular contender to the presidency of Porfirio Díaz. As the 1910 elections drew near, Díaz imprisoned Madero and won re-election for his eighth term. Following the election Madero escaped from prison and fled to Texas where he plotted a revolution. In early 1911 he re-entered Mexico at Ciudad Juárez, took command of the revolutionary armies, and swiftly progressed in a grand march across Mexico. His triumphal entry into the capital was celebrated with vigorous exaltation. Image source: Fair academic use only.
