From the New Edition of In the Shadow of the Angel:
A steady beating of drums grew louder and louder, approaching the junction where they stood. Columns of Yaqui Indians paraded past, Obregón’s fierce, crack troops. Antonieta stared at their stone faces. A group in blue overalls ran alongside the ragged soldiers, waving a banner, words rippling down the street:
HAIL GREAT LEADER, SYMBOL OF JUSTICE AND LIBERTY, VENUSTIANO CARRANZA. LONG LIVE THE REVOLUTION!
Swept along with the crowd, they arrived at the Zócalo, where a robust, one-armed general appeared on the central balcony and began addressing the multitude.
“Citizens, the assassin has fled and the Revolution has triumphed!” General Obregón shouted. “General Carranza will soon assume command. We assure you that we will take over with peace and order. Let it be heard that the sale of liquor is prohibited and looters will be punished. Anyone who damages private property will also be punished. You may go about your business and your daily affairs as usual.”
