Description
The Victoriano Huerta papers is a collection of three documents, which mainly relate to Victoriano Huerta's military history before he became the President of Mexico in 1913. The collection includes a ledger documenting donations to Huerta's forces during the Mexican Revolution in 1912, an account of his command of the 3rd Infantry Battalion from 1894-1901, and a brief overview of his military history and accomplishments until 1914.
Background
Victoriano Huerta was born on December 22, 1850, in Colotlán, Jalisco, Mexico. He graduated from the Mexican National Military Academy (Heroico Colegio Militar) in 1872, and by 1890 had reached the rank of Colonel of Engineers. He was made commander of the 3rd Infantry Battalion from 1894-1901, and led successful campaigns against rebels in Sonora and the Yucatan before retiring from the army in 1907 due to health issues.
