This poster brings together the figures of, from left to right, Francisco Madero, Emiliano Zapata, Lázaro Cárdenas, and Manuel Ávila Camacho. Madero had won the presidency in 1911 at the beginning of the Mexican Revolution, after the dictator Porfirio Díaz was deposed. Zapata, once a supporter of Madero, quickly realized that the new president had no interest in land reform and turned against him. Both were eventually assassinated. Despite their somewhat antagonistic roles in history, later presidents often invoked both Madero and Zapata in a single narrative of revolution that continued into their own administrations. The text in this print comes from a speech given by President Ávila Camacho (1940–46) on September 15, 1942, for a celebration of Mexican independence: “Here we all are, those of today and those of yesterday, those absent and those present, those who live and those who have gone, forming a sacred union that no enemy attack will ever divide.”
