Title: Benito Juarez

Description: Benito Juarez, c. 1858; Benito Pablo Juarez Garcia (1806-1872), president of Mexico; a Zapotec Amerindian, he served five terms, 1858-1861, 1861-1865, 1865-1867, 1867-1871, 1871-1872; considered Mexico's greatest and most beloved leader for resisting and overthrowing the French Empire established in Mexico by Napoleon III, for providing full rights to all citizens, and for eventually restoring the Mexican Republic.

Study Application Notes: Benito Juárez was President of Mexico for five terms from 1858 to 1872. A strong reformer, champion of justice and opponent of corruption, Juárez was a self-made man with strong opinions and boundless energy. Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of Juárez was the fact that he was a full-blooded native of Zapotec descent. He is thus the only full-blooded Mexican native ever to serve as President of Mexico and he is in part well-loved for this reason. Juárez was re-elected to the presidency in 1867 and 1871, but did not live to finish his last term. He was felled by a heart attack while working at his desk on July 18, 1872. He was an important and charismatic leader whose influence is still felt today.

Background Information: Interestingly, Juárez did not even speak Spanish until he learned in his teens. Today’s Mexicans view Juárez much like some Americans view Abraham Lincoln: he was a firm leader when his nation needed one, who took a stand in a compelling social issue that distinguished him among his contemporaries. He is held in particularly high regard by Mexico’s considerable indigenous population, who rightly view him as a trailblazer in native rights and justice.
