The Hundredth Meridian

A Border Surprise

In the Year of Our Lord 1878, on the sixth day of the sixth month of the year, was born to one Augustín Arango and his wife, Micaela Arambula, humble peasants on the Rancho de la Loyotada in Durango State, Republic of Mexico, a son, Doroteo, known to posterity as Francisco "Pancho" Villa: social bandit, indefatigable warrior, military genius, and savior of his country.
