A family photo

I had a great time talking with my nana this winter break about my heritage on her side. She shared this photo of my second great-grand uncle, Jose Ruiz, who rode as a general in the Division del Norte with Pancho Villa during the Mexican Revolution. Ruiz deserted Villa and left the army, which created a catastrophe back home in Satevo, Chihuahua – more on that another day.
