Sara Perez, truly a First Lady

Standing with every truly great man is a great woman, and the extraordinary life of Mexican Revolutionaries Francisco and Sara Madero is an inspiring example.  The couple met in San Francisco, where they were both students, and married on January 26, 1903.  Francisco Madero soon decided to enter politics.  Sara Madero was with her husband at the Battle of Juarez, assisting the soldiers injured in combat.  Madero was the first freely elected President after years of dictatorship.  The couple dedicated themselves to the betterment of Mexico’s citizens.  Francisco was assassinated 10 years later in 1913, and the First Lady was granted political asylum in Cuba.
