The Mexican revolution began in 1910 to remove the president, Porfirio Dias. In 1911, the Mexican public was heard and Francisco Madero was elected president.
A rebel named Pancho Villas played an important role in starting the Mexican revolution. He robbed the rich and shared his stolen goods with the local poor.
Until the year 2005 Revolution Day was always celebrated on November 20. However, there was a change in Mexico’s labour law and now across the country, it is celebrated on the third Monday of November.
