8. Bi-metallic Quiz Game #785…by Jack Hepler, USA
He addressed a joint session of the American Academy of Political and Social Science on Friday evening, November 10, 1916.  He was the Minister of Finance of Mexico and Chairman of the Mexican section of the American and Mexican Joint Commission.  He was in the USA to petition President Wilson to cease an arms embargo that was badly affecting the Mexican Revolution.  He was successful and soon became a favorite of Mexican Leaders.  Who is this Mexican Patriot who appears on the 2009 Bi-metallic Five Pesos?

Answer to Bi-metallic Quiz Game question #785
He fought side by side with Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, but as a trained military cavalry soldier was much better at the strategy of fighting for independence from Spanish rule.  The heated disagreements with Hidalgo probably lengthened the war but in the end both were captured and executed after being betrayed by Ignacio Elizondo.  Who is this Mexican Patriot who appears on the 2010 Bi-metallic Five Pesos?
The answer to this question is Heriberto Jara.

WBCC Quiz Game Prize
A Bi-metallic prize will be awarded for the correct answer. If more than one member gets the correct answer, a random drawing will be conducted to select a winner.
