People seem to be forgetting and not realizing that we did have a revolutionary war before the American Revolution in 1776. This war was a rapid major social change for the Pueblos Indian because they were the people who actually rebelled against the Spanish in 1680. The reasons for the pueblo revolt are still being
Causes and Effects of the Mexican and Cuban Revolution Both the Mexican and Cuban revolution occurred in the 20th century with both revolutions ending in violent outcomes. These revolutions were formed due to the unpopular leadership in both countries and the discontent by the overall the population who were mainly poor and belonged to lower classes. The Mexican revolution, which started on November 20, 1910 is seen as the first major social, cultural and political revolution of the 20th century. The Mexican revolution came from the growing opposition against the long lasting dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz and the want for social reform whereas similarly in the Cuban revolution, the 30 year authoritarian regime of Fulgencio Batista sparked
After dealing with Mexico’s weak and tyrannical government, the Texians decided to write a declaration of independence and stated “The Mexican government has failed to establish any public system of education,”. The Mexicans had previously put demands that they must follow in order to buy the land, one being you must learn spanish but were never provided a way to learn spanish. Since they brought in a population that they couldn’t take care, they couldn’t provide them the tools to fulfill their demands so they were punished which is unfair. In the Warranted War with Mexico brochure, which is about Mexico’s past and the circumstances of the war, it essentially states that Mexico became a tyrannical nanny state so they enforced tyrannical laws on the Texians. If the laws were so important, why Mexico enforce the laws as soon the Texians moved into their newly purchased land.
Third, it is the first time a revolution happened in Latin American history that transited from national democratic struggle to socialism.

Mariano Azuela reveals the reality of Mexican Revolution by weaving these themes throughout his book. Each of these themes is a direct insult to the glorification of the revolution and shows it for what it really is. Rather than the brave revolutionaries vs. the cruel Federals, a story of good vs. evil, The
When viewing the Mexican Revolution, a dichotomy between destruction and creation appears. When it kicked off in 1910, it was in the pursuit of noble goals. But at its core, the Revolution was a rebellion and at the heart of all rebellions is war. And with war comes destruction and death. While the Revolution last for at least a decade and perhaps longer, for the individuals involved life was often, as Thomas Hobbes once wrote, nasty, brutish, and short.
“According to the U.S. Census,” Muñoz writes, “by 1930 the Mexican population had reached 1,225,207, or around 1% of the population.” As a result the discrimination became more widespread and an overall greater problem in the U.S. Soon, this racism became propaganda and was evident throughout the media, “Patriots and Eugenicists argued that ‘Mexicans would create the most insidious and general mixture of white, Indian, and Negro blood strains ever produced in America’ and that most of them were ‘hordes of hungry dogs, and filthy children with faces plastered with flies [...] human filth’ who were ‘promiscuous [...] apathetic peons and lazy squaws [who] prowl by night [...] stealing anything they can get their hands on,” Muñoz writes. This exhibits the vulgar racism that evolved into the Chicano movement. The Chicano movement started with injustice in education. “In Texas and California, Mexican Americans were involved in numerous desegregation court battles,” Muñoz reports, “the first was ‘Jesus Salvatierra v. Independent School District’ in Del Rio, Texas in 1930” This was a result of Mexican American students having less resources than their white counterparts.
Right between the United States, South America, the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea lies the country of Mexico, known around the world for their bright and festive culture and rich heritage. It is one of the most visited countries in the world, and it has been the primary destination of choice among tourists and religious practitioners. From its food to their national holidays, Mexican influence is prominent and traditions often practiced outside of the country as well. Four famous civilizations existed within this country—the Mayas, the Olmecs, and the Aztecs—before the Spanish Conquistadors conquered the land in the 1500s. Spain ruled Mexico for the next 300 years until the early 1800s, when the Mexicans first

Mexico wanted to remove foreign intervention, France wanted to end absolute rule and end the class system, and American colonists wanted to gain independence from Britain and create a representative government. The goals of the Mexican revolution were carried out through revolting to try to get Francisco Madero into office, which leads to a great amount of bloodshed. Next, the goals of the French Revolution were met by creating a national assembly, which stormed the bastille on July 14, 1789. Finally, the goals of the American revolution were met through a series of revolutionary events including the Boston Tea Party, the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and the war as a result of the signing which took course over five years. These revolutionary events would end up leading to some quite significant
