The clip Revolutionary Leaders is about the Mexican revolution, what caused the war and the two main leaders of this war. The revolutionary leaders were Emiliano Zapata, who was in charge of the south and Francisco (‘Pancho’) Villa, who was in charge of the north. Both men wanted land reform and a weaker central government, but had different views for the land reforms.
During the first phase of the revolution, new faces began to influence Mexican society and Francisco Madero emerged as the leader. Madero’s anti-reelection slogan resonated with many Mexicans and eventually led them to respond to his call to arms. This response from the nation affected the current political system as Diaz fell to the revolutionaries and this shift in power caused Mexicans to be more politically active as they could now vote in elections that were more fair than they had previously been under the Porfiriato. The new leaders of the revolution (Emiliano Zapata, Pascual Orozco, and Pancho Villa) affected society at the time as they fought for the ideals that they believed to be right.

Ever since the conquistadors had conquered Mexico, the life and culture of many modern Mexicans has been altered by Spain. From the design and organization of towns and cities to religion to class system, Spain has definitely made an impression on Mexico. One of the first imprint the Spanish made was leveling the native temples and then putting their Catholic churches and administrative buildings on top.
