The 19th Century ex-Mexican military commander became one of the most hunted and illusive fugitives of all time. Leading a guerilla uprising against the powerful Mexican dictator at the time, Villa's hit-and-run terrorist tactics spilled over U.S. borders into New Mexico. In America's original "War on Terror," President Woodrow Wilson dispatched over 10,000 troops to hunt Villa with the same frustration that plagues U.S. forces in the hunt for Osama Bin Laden today. The manhunt failed and Villa rose from national hero to worldwide legend.
Weapons: Winchester 1894 rifle, Colt Bisley revolver, and Bolo knife.
Key Battles: Villa's daring raid on the border-town of Columbus, New Mexico made him one of the most wanted men in the United States. With approximately 500 revolutionaries Villa raided the town and set many of the buildings on fire.
