El Paso in El Paso County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Pascual Orozco and Pancho Villa prepared their troops for the assault but Madero, who feared the attack might antagonize American support for the revolution, ordered them to stop. On May 8, 1911 Orozco defied Madero's order and stormed the city, beginning the first Battle of Juárez. Federal troops held the city for two days but, on the third day, rebel forces triumphed, forcing the surrender of General Juan Navarro and Díaz loyalists. The loss of Ciudad Juárez led to the resignation of Díaz. Later
