A bit about Emiliano Zapata ...

Emiliano Zapata Salazar (August 8, 1879 April 10, 1919) was a leading figure in the Mexican Revolution against the dictatorship of Porfirio Daz that broke out in 1910. He is considered to be one of the outstanding national heroes of Mexico; the Zapatistas, a revolutionary movement based in the state of Chiapas, take their name from him. Towns, streets, and housing developments called "Emiliano Zapata" are common across the country and he has, at times, been depicted on Mexican banknotes.
