Benito Juarez was a Mexican lawyer and politician. He served as the 26th president of Mexico from 1858 to 1872, becoming the first president of Mexico who was of indigenous origin. He died of a heart attack in 1872. To date, he is revered as "a preeminent symbol of Mexican nationalism and resistance to foreign intervention."
Initially a muleteer at various mining companies, Pascual Orozco grew up to be a famous guerrilla leader from Chihuahua who made a significant contribution to the Mexican Revolution. Though he initially helped Francisco I. Madero depose Porfirio Díaz, he later sided with Victoriano Huerta in a coup against Madero.
