Victor 17599 - Heidelberg Quintette (Billy Murray, Robert D. Armour , Will Oakland , Steve Porter , William F. Hooley) Across The Rio Grande 1914 - Music & Lyrics by Ernest R. Ball , George Graff , Dave Reed, Jr. The United States occupation of Veracruz, which began with the Battle of Veracruz, lasted for seven months and was a response to the Tampico Affair of April 9, 1914. The incident came in the midst of poor diplomatic relations between Mexico and the United States, and was related to the ongoing Mexican Revolution. The United States occupation of Veracruz, which began with the Battle of Veracruz, lasted for seven months and was a response to the Tampico Affair of April 9, 1914. The incident came in the midst of poor diplomatic relations between Mexico and the United States, and was related to the ongoing Mexican Revolution. The United States involvement in the Mexican Revolution was varied. The United States' relationship with Mexico has often been turbulent. For both economic and political reasons, the American government generally supported those who occupied the seats of power, whether they held that power legitimately or not. Prior to Woodrow Wilson's inauguration, the US military focused mainly on just warning the Mexican military that decisive action from the US military would take place if lives and property of North Americans living in the country were endangered. The U.S. had helped the Mexicans achieve independence and supported Benito Juárez in his overthrow of emperor Maximilian, but had also forcefully annexed half of Mexico's territory after the Mexican--American War and supported dictators like Porfirio Díaz, while its ambassador to Mexico, acting without authority, conspired to assassinate legitimate president Francisco Madero. The United States had also sent troops to bomb and occupy Veracruz and engaged in cross-border skirmishes with Francisco "Pancho" Villa and others.
Pasadas las dos de la mañana del día 21 de abril de 1914, el presidente Wilson fue despertado por una llamada telefónica del secretario de Marina, quien le informaba que el buque Iipiranga" había zarpado de la habana rumbo a Veracruz, con mil 330 cajas de cargamento. Esa misma madrugada, la flota del almirante Fletcher que se hallaba en aguas mexicanas frente a Veracruz, no permite que los implementos de guerra les sean entregados al gobierno de Victoriano Huerta.

But Germany's stance against the USA actually brought the country into the international spotlight. After the decoding of the Zimmerman Telegram, sent by the Germans to Mexico, was decoded it was clear that Germany wanted to bring Mexico into the war - against the United States. » HOW CAN I SUPPORT YOUR CHANNEL?

The American Army under the direction of General Pershing went to Mexico in response to Panch Villa's raid on Columbus. President Wilson sent 5,000 men of the U.S. Army under General John Pershing into Mexico to capture Villa. Employing aircraft and trucks for the first time in US Army history, Pershing's force chased Villa until February 1917. The search for Villa was unsuccessful. However, some of Villa's senior commanders (Colonel Candelario Cervantes, General Francisco Beltrán, Beltrán's son and Villa's second-in-command Julio Cárdenas) and a total of 190 of his men were killed during the expedition. The Mexican population were against US troops in Mexican territories. There were several demonstrations of their opposition to the Punitive Expedition and that counted towards the failure of that expedition. During the expedition, Carranza's forces captured one of Villa's top generals, Pablo Lopez; he was executed on June 13, 1916. Camera crews recorded the war.
