Alamos parents are very proud of their children. When families go out, whether to promenade on the Plaza on Sunday night, or for a big event like a fiesta, their children look their very best. A home may look poor, but it holds everything to make a daughter beautiful and a son handsome.
The Mexican Revolution began on November 20, 1910 when Francisco I. Madero called for revolt against President Porfirio Díaz. Civil warfare and unrest continued into the early 1920s. There were major changes such as the 1917 establishment of the ejido farm cooperatives and a new Constitution under President Carranza. In the end, Alvaro Obregõn, the last of a diverse group of revolutionaries, became president of Mexico.
