Abstract

232 Southwestern Historical Quarterly October if he might be a progressive reformer despite this support. This is needless speculation as historians and, more importantly, most contemporar y par- ticipants in the Mexican Revolution have viewed Orozco as the counter- revolutionar y he became. Caballero’s unique and most valuable contribution comes in his expla- nation of Orozco’s death. He places it in the context of the aftermath of the Plan de San Diego, when amid “Bandit War” hysterics, white ranchers and lawmen engaged in the wanton killing of Mexicans along the bor- der. Caballero concludes that Orozco and his posse, when attempting to reenter Mexico, were lynched, as were countless other victims. Once authorities realized Orozco’s identity they labeled him a horse thief and conducted a sham trial to exonerate his murderers and quell any possible reprisals from Mexican American communities in Texas.
