Plutarco Elías Calles is a Mexican general and politician who served as the president of Mexico from 1924-1928. He was the founder of the Partido Nacional Revolucionario (PND) which became the major Mexican political party. Calles' fierce opposition to the Roman Catholics eventually led to the Cristero War, a civil war between government forces and Catholic rebels.
