The Military Train Massacre May 1, 1913
On this date a group of soldiers from the Anishinabe Confederation of southern Mexico, were instructed by their military commanders, to blow up a military train sitting on the Mexico-Morelos border. They carried out their instructions successfully. Close to 100 Mexican soldiers were killed. On July 17, 1913, American involvement in the Mexican Civil War intensified. President Woodrow Wilson recalled US ambassador to Mexico Henry Lane Wilson. The Americans knew that Mexico was in deep trouble, especially in the north, where the soldiers from the Anishinabe Confederation of northern Mexico, were ever increasing and planning their campaigns for expanding their conquests in southern Mexico. The war was now being fought throughout Mexico. The number of American soldiers in Mexico grew and so did their casualties.
