    Add Review/Comment

    The Mexican Revolution of 1910 set in motion dramatic changes for many families, both in Mexico and Texas. The Institute of Texan Cultures exhibit, Leaving Home, Finding Home: Texan Families Remember the Mexican Revolution, explores the turmoil and social upheaval that caused thousands of Mexicans to flee their homeland and seek a new life in Texas. The exhibit looks at these families triumphs, contributions and challenges. A personal experience exhibit, Texans whose families immigrated during the Mexican Revolution of 1910 and through the conflicts aftermath, will share passed-down stories using photos, objects and oral histories. Families explain, in their own words, the difficulties faced, achievements accomplished and contributions made as they blended their Mexican heritage into their new Texas home.
