The character in this novel my class is reading is a composer of narcocorridos, which is one reason why I have so many corridos on this blog lately — I find them as I am looking for examples for the students.

Now I have found this, on the Battle of Zacatecas, Zacatecas being one of my very favorite towns in Mexico. When I first liked Zacatecas I had not yet read Los de abajo and did not realize what an important role it had had in the Mexican Revolution.

In the video we have an interesting song and amazing footage of Zacatecas as it was then.
