Zapata and the agrarians enter the rebellion

What occurred

Tired of the oppression by the Porfirians, Emiliano Zapata led the agrarian villagers of the indigenous regions in to a revolt on the side of Madero. These villagers were focused mainly on the protection and possible expansion of the land they owned and felt they deserved. These peasants were essential to the revolution in the way of rural support and a fighting force throughout Mexico.
