In the spring of 1911 Pascual Orozco and Francisco "Pancho" Villa amassed their revolutionary forces on the outskirts of Ciudad Ju?rez and were soon joined by Francisco I. Madero. The Madero Camp, which stood across the river from this site, became the center of the revolutionary movement against President Porfirio D?az. A small, simple adobe building, known as "La Casita Gris," or the Little Grey House, served as the headquarters of Madero's provisional army and thousands of irregular troops were camped at the site. For weeks the Madero Camp was crowded with journalists, spectators, and was the scene of lively revolutionary celebrations.

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 Ju?rez. Federal troops held the city for two days but, on the third day, rebel forces triumphed, forcing the surrender of General Juan Navarro and D?az loyalist. The loss of Ciudad Ju?rez led to the resignation of D?az. Later that year Francisco I Madero was swept into the presidency of Mexico, but his coalition of revolutionaries was already falling apart. Within two years, President Madero was deposed, imprisoned, and killed by D?az loyalists.

Campamento Madero
En la primavera de 1911 Pascual Orozco y Pancho Villa juntaron sus fuerzas revolucionarias en las afueras de Ciudad Ju?rez, y poco despu Francisco I. Madero se uni? al grupo. El Campamento Madero que se hallaba al otro lado del r?o se convirti? en el n?cleo del movimiento revolucionario en contra del Presidente Porfirio D?az. Una peque?a y sencilla construcci?n de adobe, conocida como La Casita Gris, sirvi? de sede para el ej?rcito provisional de Madero. Miles de tropas desiguales acamparon en este lugar. Durante semanas el Campamento Madero se encontr? tupido de periodistas, espectadores y fue lugar de celebraciones revolucionarias animadas.

Pascaul Orozco y Pancho Villa prepararon a sus soldados para el asalto, pero Madero, quien tem?a que el ataque podr?a enajenar el apoyo estadounidense a la revoluci?n, orden? que se suspendiera. El 8 de Mayo de 1911, Orozco desafi? la orden de Madero y atac? a la ciudad, dando inicio a la primera Batalla de Ju?ez. Por dos d?as el ej?rcito federal retuvo la ciudad, pero para el tercer d?a, triunfaron los soldados rebeldes, obligando al General Juan Navarro y los partidarios de D?az que se rindieran. Al perder Cd. Ju?rez, el Presidente Porfirio D?az se vio obligado, a renunciar. El mismo a?o Francisco I. Madero fue impulsado como Presidente de M?xico, pero ya empezaba a derrumbarse su confederaci?n revolucionaria. En el espacio de los a?os, el Presidente Madero fue destituido, encarcelado, y asesinado por los partidarios de D?az.
