Born a peasant, orphaned at 15, an outlaw by 16, Doroteo Arnago, AKA Pancho Villa rose from the lowest rungs of the social ladder to become one of Mexico's greatest military chieftains. He commanded thousands of men, outmaneuvered and eluded 10,000 Americans led by Blackjack Pershing. A friend of the poor and a very macho Man. He is the he-man hero in the Mexican tradition of machismo—overpowering, dominant, and larger than life.
All four women would arrive at the cemetery in Parral honoring Villa's memory on the anniversary of his assassination, and each would lay a wreath on his grave, but not before removing the flowers placed by the other women. Ay-yi-yi.
