Emiliano Zapata

"Zapata was loaded onto a mule, taken to Cuautla, and dumped on the pavement. Flashlights were shone in his face and photographs were taken in an effort to destroy his myth. Zapata was dead. But the people of the valley refused to believe it. Zapata could not die. He was far too smart to be killed in an ambush. And hadn't his white horse been spotted waiting for him on top of the mountain?"

-Carlos Fuentes
