Today's question and answer:
Q:Among the over 60,000 graves are many El Paso military, and once even was the resting place of Mexican Revolutionary figure Pascual Orozco
A: Concordia Cemetery has numerous old soldiers buried on it's grounds, and at one point also entombed Victoriano Huerta (1854-1916) and Pascual Orozco (1882-1915), two important figures in the Mexican Revolution. Huerta, a general and military dictator, served briefly as president of Mexico. His remains were eventually removed to El Paso's Evergreen Cemetery. Orozco, a Mexican Revolutionary leader wound up as a temporary resident at Concordia Cemetery before his remains were moved to the Mexican state of Chihuahua..
