Francisco Pancho Villa (18781923) was one of the most prominent Mexican Revolutionary generals. As one of the major and most colorful figures of the first successful popular revolution of the 20th century, Villas notoriety attracted journalists, photographers, and military freebooters of both idealistic and opportunistic stripes from far and wide.
