Commander of federal forces during the Mexican Revolution, Victoriano Huerta (b. 1854) became President of Mexico in 1913, after the arrest and before the assassination of Francisco Madero. Huerta resigned a year later and went into exile. In 1915, U.S. agents arrested him in Newman, New Mexico, where he was meeting fellow revolutionary Pascual Orozco. For violating U.S. neutrality laws, Huerta was taken to Fort Bliss and confined. Huerta's health deteriorated before he could stand trial, and authorities released him to his El Paso home on West Yandell Street. In January 1916, Huerta died and was buried in Concordia Cemetery before being reinterred in Evergreen Cemetery. He is the only former foreign president buried in El Paso.
