The entrance to the Campo Marte is marked by a monument to Division General Joaquín Amaro Domínguez (1889–1952). Amaro was the principle organizer of the modern Mexican Army. A revolutionary general and military reformer, he later served as Secretary of War through the 1920s. He's often credited with transforming the armed forces from a partisan political faction to one loyal to the president and constitution. A committed leader during the Revolution, his experience led to the successful consolidation of the Mexican government and armed forces that had fought bitterly during the long war.
