Notes

In 1913, John Reed was dispatched to Mexico by the Metropolitan Magazine to report on the Mexican Revolution. John Reed was present with General Villa's Constitutional Army when they defeated the Mexican Federal forces in Torreon. The victory in Torreon allowed Villa to advance his forces into Mexico City. John Reed is also best known for being present during the October Revolution, in which the Russian Social-Democratic Labour Party (Bolshevik) headed by Vladimir Lenin toppled the Kerensky government in what they believed to be the first blow struck in a worldwide socialist revolution.
