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.
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.
