CASTRO, Pedro. General Francisco Serrano: a political biographical sketch. Polis [online]. 2005, vol.1, n.2, pp.55-80. ISSN 2594-0686.

This essay is a biographical sketch of General Francisco R. Serrano, outstanding member of the so-called Sonora Group, once considered as a serious candidate to occupy the presidential post after Plutarco Elías Calles’ tenure. When Serrano broke with general Obregón, he opposed to the new presidential tenure of the caudillo. The purpose of this research is to examine the relevant aspects of the political life of Serrano as well as his role and the Mexican government’s in the electoral events of 1927, and his sacrifice in Huitzilac.

Keywords : Serrano; Obregón; Calles; Sonora; Serranism; Obregonism; Gómez; caudillo; Huitzilac’s slaughter.
