ithankthevirgin:

I give thanks to the Virgin of Guadalupe because I survived and bore our Standard of Zapatista Army at the Triumphal Parade to the National Palace in Mexico where my general, don Emiliano Zapata, and general Francisco Villa received a great ovation from the people. I proudly present this retablo that depicts that day, December 6, 1914. May the Virgin protect us who are fighting in the Revolution under her protection.

Zapatista and guadalupano Antonio Basona.
