Munchkins Parade

Schoolkids march in yesterday's parade marking the anniversary of the Mexican Revolution (November 20, 1910). We're awarding extra credit for avoiding the obvious Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata costumes. The first person who can name all five men in the picture below wins the right to change the title of this blog to whatever you want for the entire weekend.


















[Note: We've only got four out of five ourselves. If someone can help us out with the second guy from the left, we'd appreciate it.]

Update: From left to right: Venustiano Carranza; ???; Francisco Madero; Victoriano Huerta; Alvaro Obregon.

Fu Man Chu?

Pretty sure it's Venustiano Carranza.

There's a dude with a big 'stache there.

Wait. The little guy on the extreme left could also be Carranza.

I'll forgo the jokes about Carranza's politics, and agree that he's the one on the extreme left. The other guy looks a little like Leon Trotsky, but that wouldn't make any sense.

Though it would make more sense than Fu man chu.

Francisco I Madero
Venustiano Carranza
José María Pino Suarez
Álvaro Obregon
and...
Victoriano Huerta or maybe Pascual Orozco...

Jorge's got four, unless he meant to list them from left to right, in which case they're all wrong.

I think the guy with the white beard is Bernardo Reyes, who initially supported Madero's rebellion, but was the figurehead of the February 1913 coup d'etat that ended with U.S. Ambassador Henry Lane Wilson installing Victoriano Huerta.

Unless it's that old socialist, Santa Claus
