THE BALLAD OF GREGORIO CORTEZ

In June 1901 a Texan sheriff kills the brother of Mexican farm worker Gregorio Cortez Lira due to mistranslation of a testimony. In self-defence Cortez shoots the sheriff and flees. After that Cortez isn’t unknown anymore and six hundred Texas Rangers hunt him across the whole country. His escape and capture became symbol of the resistance of the Mexican immigrants and are legendary up to the present day.
