Zapata by GENZOMAN Zapata by GENZOMAN
A old Illustration done in January of 2008

I´m Not mexican, but Emiliano Zapata is one of the most important figures of the hispanic history.

Emiliano Zapata Salazar (August 8, 1879 – April 10, 1919) was a leading figure in the Mexican Revolution, which broke out in 1910, and which was initially directed against the president Porfirio Díaz. He formed and commanded an important revolutionary force, the Liberation Army of the South, during the Mexican Revolution.

In 1910, Zapata quickly took an important role, becoming the general of an army that formed in Morelos – the Ejército Libertador del Sur (Liberation Army of the South).

Zapata joined Madero’s campaign against President Diaz. With the support of Pancho Villa, Pascual Orozco, Emiliano Zapata, and rebellious peasants, Madero overthrew Díaz in May 1911 in the battle at Ciudad Juárez.

Zapata was partly influenced by an anarchist from Oaxaca named Ricardo Flores Magón. The influence of Flores Magón on Zapata can be seen in the Zapatistas' Plan de Ayala, but even more noticeably in their slogan (this slogan was never used by Zapata) "Tierra y libertad" or "land and liberty", the title and maxim of Flores Magón's most famous work.

On April 10, 1919, Guajardo invited Zapata to a meeting, intimating that he intended to defect to the revolutionaries. However, when Zapata arrived at the Hacienda de San Juan, in Chinameca, Ayala municipality, Guajardo's men riddled him with bullets.

Modern activists in Mexico frequently make reference to Zapata in their campaigns, his image is commonly seen on banners and many chants invoke his name: Si Zapata viviera con nosotros andaría, "If Zapata lived, he would walk with us." Zapata vive, la lucha sigue, "Zapata lives; the struggle continues."

In the folklore of the people of Morelos, there is a widespread belief that Zapata did not die. The corpse purported to be his was that of a friend posing as Zapata,because there was something on Zapata's chest that the dead body didn't have and that Zapata himself fled to some obscure rural locale.

This is a gorgeous piece and I certainly appreciate it although I would have liked to see a phenotype depicted more as who he really was. Zapata was an Afro-Indigenous man. Nahuatl was his mother language and lived in a town which had a large population of African mixed people including himself. Some of the most important treatises were also written in the Nahuatl language. Just a little bit of history. So in reality Zapata had little if at all any Hispanic (spaniard) blood running though his veins. Of course in the US anyone who speak Spanish is considered a HIspanic or latino despite of their genetic make up.
