March 14, 1916.....On this day, the US military invaded Mexico. This invasion was in response to Mexican outlaw Pancho Villa’s attack on a small US border town.
At this time, Mexico was involved in a civil war. In the North, folk hero Pancho Villa… in the South, Emiliano Zapata. This invasion united the warring sides of Mexico. After fighting for 11 months, the USA withdrew, without having captured or killed Pancho Villa
