Deadliest Warrior Season 3 Episode 8: Crazy Horse vs Pancho Villa - Video - FULL:

September 7th, 2011 -- While there was a large difference between how these two warriors attained their weapons, the damage they make is just as devastating. Enjoy this battle of the Southwest as the revolutionary General Pancho Villa takes on the Lakota Warrior Crazy Horse!


Crazy Horse:
Crazy Horse, literally meaning "His-Horse-Is-Crazy," was born around 1842-3. He was a great First Nations war leader of the Lakota people. When settlers began encroaching upon his territories and the Lakota people's customs, he took up arms against the U.S. Federal government to stop the oppression. Crazy Horse is best known for being one of the major leaders of a war party at the Battle of the Little Bighorn(a.k.a. Custer's Last Stand) in June 1876, the most famous battle of the Great Sioux War. It was an overwhelming victory for Crazy Horse: the U.S. Seventh Cavalry, including the Custer Battalion (a force of 700 men), suffered a major defeat. In total, five U.S. companies were annihilated; Custer was killed and U.S. deaths totaled 268. Since then, Crazy Horse ranks among the most distinctive First Nations tribal members and has been honored by the U.S. Postal Servicewith a postage stamp from the "Great Americans" Series.

Pancho Villa:
Pancho Villa was born on June 5,1878 and is known best as being one of the most prominent Mexican Revolutionary Generals. Since Villa was Commander of the North Division, there was a wealth of resources at his disposal due to the mineral mines in the area and proximity to the United States. This wealth allowed Villa to purchase weapons and train his men appropriately for battle. Furthermore, many streets and neighborhoods in Mexico were named in his honor. This "People's Warrior" developed his reputation by seizing land for distribution to peasants and soldiers.

Villa's dominance in northern Mexico began to crumble in 1915 however, when a series of defeats began to take their toll. After Pancho Villa's raid on Columbusin 1916, the US Armydispatched General J.J. Pershingto capture Villa. However, after nine months of unsuccessful attempts General Pershing was recruited back to lead men into World War I. When Pancho Villa retired he turned his large estate into a "military colony" for his former soldiers, solidifying his image as the "People's Warrior."
