Pasqual Orozco ... Mexican bandit and insurrectionist opposed to the Diaz government. After defeating the Federales in a battle, he stripped the dead soldiers and sent the uniforms to President Diaz with a note, "Here are the wrappers, now please send some more Tamales." Unfortunate for Pasqual, some years later he ran afoul of U.S. laws and was killed in a shoot out with Texas Rangers in Lobo, Texas.
