Mexican Revolution Timelines

The Mexican Revolution - When did it start? When did it end?

The Mexican Revolution officially started on November 20, 1910, although fighting broke out earlier than that.

However, November 20 it is because this date was chosen by Francisco Madero in his  Plan of San Luis Potosí.


Today, the beginning of the Mexican Revolution is commemorated as a public Mexican holiday.

See The Mexican Revolution and Public Holidays.


Historians disagree when it comes to its ending point. Commonly used is the year 1920 but some say it was in 1917, a few others even favor the year 1940.
