Francisco I. Madero redacta en la prision el Plan de San Luis. 5 de octubre de 1910. Grabado de Isodoro Ocampo.

En las eleciones de 1910, Porfirio Díaz burló el voto popular y ordenó el inmediato encarcelamiento del Apóstol Francisco I. Madero, quien durante su encierro se dedicó a formular los principios del Plan de San Luis Potosí. En este histórico documento se hacía un llamado al pueblo para derrocar al usurpador y se ofrecían trascendentales reformas de carácter social. Madero se fugó de la cárcel y el 20 de noviembre de ese año se lanzó a la Revolución.

In the elections of 1910, Porfirio Díaz mocked the popular vote and ordered the immediate imprisonment of the apostle Francisco I. Madero, who during his confinement was dedicated to formulating the principles of the Plan of San Luis Potosi. In this historical document, a call was made to the people to overthrow the usurper and far-reaching social reforms were offered. Madero escaped from prison and on November 20th of that year he joined the Revolution.
