Luis Herrera, until re cently Carranza's military gov ernor of Chihuahua, has renounc ed Carranza and joined the Villa forces and taking with him 2,000 troops. From 1913 to 1915 Gen. Luis Herrera was one of Villa’s bri gade commanders. He with his brother, Maclovio Herrera raised a brigade in southern Chuahua that gained much prominence in Villa’s early campaigns. After the death of Maclovio Herrera, and the subsequent reverses of Villa, Gen. Luis Herrera deserted and joined Carranza.
