The first Madero Revolution broke out in Mexico on November 20, 1910. On December 27, a revolutionary party exacted supplies, arms, and mules from the company until January 7, 1911, when the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the federal government destroyed three and a half tons of their dynamite near Baquiachi. On September 8, 1912, Batopilas was captured, a local garrison driven out, and the company forced to pay 10,000 pesos. Federal forces retook the town September 19.
