Military Personnel
    (June 5, 1878-July 20, 1923)
    Birth name is José Doroteo Arango Arámbula
    Stole cattle and horses as a youth
    Given an education by politician Abraham Gonzalez
    Lead a group of Mexican raiders into Colombus, New Mexico (March 9, 1916)
    He had a very bad temper.
    His early life is obscure and clouded in legend.
    He burned down the town of Colombus, New Mexico, stole 100 horses and mules and killed 17 of its residents in retaliation of US recognition of a corrupt Mexican government (March 9, 1916).
    This prompted President Woodrow Wilson to launch the Pancho Villa Expedition, a massive 12,000 troop manhunt in Mexico.
    He was not captured in the expedition and it was called off as a failure (January 1917).
    He may have been involved with the German government in an effort to destabilize the southern border.
    He hated Chinese people and would murder any whom he encountered.
    His last words were, 'Don't let it end like this. Tell them I said something.'
    Despite being a murderous bandit and an outlaw most of his life, Mexico sees him as a folk hero.
    He played himself in most of the earlier movies about his life.
    He even signed a contract with the Mutual Film Company to film one of his battles (January 5, 1914).
    He was assassinated (1923).
