Society did not do too well under Porfirio Diaz's rule. The Mexican Revolution broke out in 1910 when Diaz was challenged by Fransisco I. Madero. Madero's call for the revolution were answered after when Diaz refused to clean elections. Millions had died as rival politicians and warloads fought each other over the cities and regions of Mexico. Diaz started to lose grip on the nation, Economic downturn caused many to lose their jobs and people started declaring for changes.

Francisco Madero believed in democracy and wanted to strengthen its hold in Mexico. He started the Mexican Revolution because he wanted to overthrow the dictator Profirio Diaz. Madero failed as a president by favoring the rich land owners and failing to change out of what belonged to Diaz. He later got assassinated by Jose Suarez.
Alvaro Obregon had restored order to Mexico after a decade of political disruption. He became president of Mexico from 1920 to 1924. He wanted to rejoin the world after its bloody revolution and the struggle with the "Spanish" flu. He signed the Bucareli Agreements in 1923 to lay better relations and peace between the two nations.

Villa was a Mexican revolutionary leader who advocated for the poor and land reform. He helped lead the Mexican Revolution which had ended Porfirio Diaz´s career as president. He decided to join Madero and agreed to be leader in the revolutionary army because Madero promised change for the lower classes. Fransisco Villa also led the creation of a new government in Mexico. As of now, Villa is remembered as a folk hero and a champion to the lower classes.
