Mexico at the Hour of Combat: Sabino Osuna’s Photographs of the Mexican Revolution looks back more than 100 years to a vision of the Mexican Revolution from photographer, Sabino Osuna. The Mexican Revolution was a major armed struggle that started in 1910 with an uprising led by Francisco I. Madero against longtime dictator Porfirio Díaz. The Revolution is generally considered to have lasted until 1920, although the country continued to have sporadic outbreaks of warfare well into the 1920s. The Revolution led to the creation of the Mexican Constitution of 1917 and the Partido Nacional Revolucionario (National Revolutionary Party), which was later renamed the Partido Revolucionario Institucional (Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI), in 1929. Under a variety of leaders, the PRI held power until the general election of 2000.
