The Plan of Ayala was a document where Emiliano called for a land reform, which drew support from the campesinos. The reason for why Emiliano Zapata wanted a land reform was because he noticed that the hacendados and the top class had monopolized all the land that belong to the people and he became like a robin hood to them because his plan was to take this land from the privilege and give it to the campesinos and that's the big difference between Emiliano Zapata and Pancho Villa even though they both wanted a land reform they did it differently. The land reform stated that one third of the land of the hacendados had to be given for them to share with the campesinos and whoever disobeys this would have the other two thirds taken away as the Plan of Ayala states. To the revolution the Plan of Ayala because it was a standard test of who they could trust because whoever disagree with this plan wasn't much of Emiliano’s liking, he was also able to carry this plan out in his home state of Morelos but had not much luck or time for him to implement his plan in the rest of Mexico. The Plan of Ayala was quite important for the aim of Emiliano Zapata in the Mexican revolution because it managed to give some of the land back to campesinos even though it wasn't at the scale Emiliano Zapata Invision.
The two Spanish kings, Carlos IV and King Fernando, were forced by Napoleon Bonaparte to abdicate the throne and replaced by his brother, Joseph Bonaparte. This led to the imperial crisis as citizens were confused about which legitimate ruler and legal policies should they obey at that time.

This journal article tells us the story of Pancho Villa and his aim to a land reform and how he went about it with an agrarian reform in 1913 but even though he makes an attempt to portray Pancho Villa as an agrarian revolutionary it isn't convincing enough. The value of this, is that since it's a secondary source we are able to get a more analized view of his aim and we also get a very detailed explanation of the social, political, and economic stages and in this journal article Friedrich Katz analyzes some primary sources like memoirs and newspapers of that time period. Since it's not a primary source it has a limitation since we are getting the detail picture through the description of Friedrich Katz and not Pancho Villa and we are confronted by an attempt of Friedrich Katz to portray Francisco Villa as an agrarian revolutionary so we can see that what Katz writes in his journal article is just information to support why Francisco Villa was an agrarian revolutionary which can lead for Katz to analyze documents that would prove otherwise even though it would help us understand the whole
The Underdogs by Mariano Azuela is a story about the rebellion against Porfirio Diaz, specifically the lives of peasant farmers who took up arms against the Federals. There are three themes that are the most prevalent throughout the book; greed and cruelty, the hypocrisy of the peasant soldiers, and the lack of personal purpose for the revolution. Each of these themes are tied to the author’s message about the actuality of the Mexican revolution. The Underdogs follows a peasant farmer named Demetrio Macias and the men he leads into battle. Despite this being a book about a war, much of the book is about the lives of Demetrio and his men in between battles, rather than during battles.

Differing ideas of national identity shaped views of United States overseas expansion in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to a great extent due to the presence of segregation amongst the African American population, acquisition of the Philippines, and encouragement of violence as a result of the Spanish-American War.

The October Manifesto 1905 was a political reform in response to Bloody Sunday which allowed freedom of speech and creation of the Duma, a parliamentary body. The Duma gained control over laws and created hope and expectation for further reforms. However, Nicholas II, the Tsar, still referred to himself as an autocrat in the October Manifesto document. The Fundamental Laws 1906 contributed to growing grievances in Russia as the people were denied a political voice and reaffirmed the Tsar’s power with the use of ‘veto’ meaning ‘I forbid.’ Moreover, Nicholas appointed Stolypin in 1906 as Prime Minister to address protestors and peasant poverty. Stolypin’s policies addressed any opposition to the regime with the use of secret police and executions, thus known as ‘Stolypin’s necktie.’ Stolypin’s policies demonstrate a failure of the Tsar to create effective political reforms resulting in the downfall of the Romanov
