Mexico experienced several civil wars throughout its history. However, most references to the Mexican Civil War refer to the conflict that took place between 1910 and 1920, also known as the Mexican Revolution. This was a period of political and social upheaval in Mexico that resulted in significant changes to the country's government, economy, and society.
The Mexican Revolution began due to widespread dissatisfaction with the government of Porfirio Diaz, who had been in power for over 30 years. Several different groups, including peasants, workers, and intellectuals, began to organize against Diaz's government, and a series of uprisings and battles followed.
The conflict continued for a decade, with various factions fighting for control of the country. Revolutionaries were eventually successful in overthrowing Diaz's government, and a new constitution was adopted in 1917 that established Mexico as a federal democratic republic.
The Mexican Revolution had a profound impact on the country, leading to significant social and political reforms and changes to the distribution of land and wealth. It also resulted in the deaths of an estimated one million people and forced many others to flee the country. Today, the Mexican Revolution is remembered as a pivotal moment in the country's history and a symbol of the struggle for social justice and equality.
