Instrumental in Emiliano Zapata's murder


Pablo González Garza was a general during the
Mexican Revolution of 1910.

Pablo became famous for devising the plan to bring down
Emiliano Zapata, which he did in the year 1919.

However, Pablo González Garza had to stomach harsh criticism prior to that feat.

Venustiano Carranza, Pablo González Garza's boss, said in an interview with Spanish journalist V. Blasco Ibañez that "General González commanded the largest forces in the Revolution and he came out of it with the unique honor of having lost every battle in which he was engaged."

 

Tuff stuff, but Pablo outlived them all. Besides, what the good man lacked in military victories he made up with brutality.

Pablo González and the Guerrillas

As to Pablo González Garza's reputation, it is said that his employed methods of repression overshadowed even those adopted by Victoriano Huerta and Robles Domínguez in earlier counterrevolutionary campaigns.

But what González really did was giving the people of Morelos a reason to rally again and to resume the revolution. González' barbaric methods pushed the people back towards Zapata in their misery, more bitter and more determined because now they had even less to lose.

On top of that the people of Morelos had already seen the major improvements Zapata had brought about. All that was swept away once more by the federals and the state of Morelos went back to guerrilla war fighting 30,000 well-armed federals in small units of 100 or 200.
