Emiliano Zapata’s revolver

    Emiliano Zapata is a Mexican national hero. He was a general in the Mexican revolution until being ambushed and killed by an opposing general who had claimed that he wished to surrender.

    Paul, a reader of the blog, emailed me photos of a revolver in his collection that was once owned by Zapata.

    Many more photos after the jump.
