OriginEdit

One of the only generals to survive the Mexican Revolution (mostly) intact, Obregón battled against President Victoriano Huerta's forces after the Madero government was overthrown. With support of his Sonoran home state, Obregón captured Mexico City and toppled the fledgling Huerta regime. After a formal split with fellow general Venustiano Carranza over the new government, they rejoined forces to combat rebels Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata. Obregón would always recount after his arm was blown off in battle, it suddenly appeared out of nowhere to grasp an unclaimed gold coin.

After Carranza was assassinated, Obregón was elected as the first postwar President. Taking measures to stabilize the nation, he instituted new educational, farmland and labor laws. However, he also continued to spearhead campaigns against the Yaqui people, priests, American oil companies and even his own financial minister. Believing the wealthy, foreigners and the Church were complicit with Huerta, Obregón imposed heavy financial sanctions and public humiliation to bend them to his will. Obregón was later assassinated before his second term by a persecuted Catholic adherent.
