Always Look at the Money to see what Really Happened
Born in Laredo, Texas, De La Garza served as financial agent for Francisco (Pancho) Villa. Named, Agente de Financiero de la Division del Norte in Oct. 1913, he served as President of the Banco del Estado de Chihuahua, created by General Villa in Dec. 1913, and was Comision de la Hacienda in Torreon. He was also President of L. De la Garza & Co. , Inc. , an import, Export and commission business organized in New York in 1915; other Officers were Rafael L. Hernandez and Jose F. Farias. De La Garza left México in 1914 and moved to Los Angeles, California. It must be noted that De la Garza Inc. involvement continued long after this move. Pancho Villa at one point stated that Garza was no longer loyal to the Revolution. Villa tried to smooth this over but to no avail. Garza just pocketed more money along with the other financiers.
Could Pancho Villa win the war if all the funds went toward the war effort ? HE WHO HAS THE MOST MONEY WINS.
