Pancho’s Pension

web-twm-Pancho-Villa-by-BBB_May-2015_4AZRAfter almost ten years of fighting, Pancho Villa sends a telegram to President Huerta requesting amnesty. Huerta agrees and gives Villa a huge hacienda and pensions for him and 200 of his soldiers. Pancho becomes the very thing he fought to eradicate: a rich Hacendado. On July 20, 1923, Villa is ambushed by seven riflemen, and killed. My guess is they didn’t want to pay those pensions.
