Prision y muerte de los descontentos en el norte del pais. 1909. Grabado de Ignacio Aguirre.

En Las Vacas, Palomas y Jiménez se registraron en 1909 importantes levantamientos armados, los cuales fueron debidamente organizados por el Partido Liberal Mexicano. Los jefes de estos movimientos rebeldes fueron aprehendidos en su mayoría y muertos por órdenes espresas de Porfirio Díaz, quien ya para esas fechas vivía presa del terror, a causa de que diariamente tenía noticias de nuevos acontecimientos revolucionarios.


Prison and death of the discontented people in the north of the country. 1909. Print by Ignacio Aguirre.

In 1909, in Las Vacas, Palomas and Jiménez recorded important armed uprisings, which were duly organized by the Mexican Liberal party. The chiefs of these rebel movements were apprehended and killed at the orders of Porfirio Díaz, who was already living in terror during this time because he received information of new revolutionary events on a daily basis.
