I know that I am the great-granddauggter of a Mexican Revolutionary named Miguel Garza Sr. He lived in Salineño, Texas—33 miles away from Zapata, Texas—he was the oldest son of Lazaro Garza Garcia Canales who used to be a Mexican Military Officer and Leader of the US and Mexican Border relations from Baja California to the Deep South of Texas. My grandfather Miguel Garza, Jr. would tell me stories of his father smuggling and harboring firearms in our family ranch for Emiliano Zapata. We have even found the famous bullet belts scattered about our ranch in Salineño among other cool items such as obsidian arrowheads. As a child and now as an adult, I have combed through 44 acres of family history in search of more evidence.
