"Los Dorados" The Golden Ones
Villa was know for using a special group he called "Los Dorados" to win his battles. This elite calvary was well trained and well equiped. It was formed into three squandrons of 100 men each. Every man was equiped with a rifle, two pistols, and two good horses. "Los Dorados" were feared by the federales beacause of their ferocious cavarly charges and for their ability to fire accurately from the saddle. They would charge into battle and weaken the enemy with as many casualties as they could. That way when the main forces arrived the enemy was weak enough to be defeated easily.
