Just in time for Hispanic Heritage Month the U.S. Library of Congress has rolled out an interactive online exhibit that tells the story of the sometimes complex but never boring relationship between the neighboring countries of the United States and Mexico — with a particular focus on the Mexican Revolution in the years 1910-1920.

"The Mexican Revolution and the United States in the Collections of the Library of Congress" allow readers to travel back in time with just a click of a mouse and immerse themselves in a wealth of information that includes items from various parts of the library - the largest in the world with more than 162 million items.

The exhibit includes videos, audios, photographs, maps, manuscripts, books and several rare items, such as letters from President William Taft, who was in office during the early years of the Mexican revolution.

The entire exhibit is also available in Spanish.

The exhibit is divided into seven sections that include a meticulous description of the factors that lead to the 10-year armed struggle which fundamentally changed Mexican culture and its governmental structure. It also depicts some lesser-known aspects of the conflict that started as a revolt against the established central government and expanded into a national civil war, such as the U.S. involvement in pitting Mexican leaders against one another.
