Tiburcio Vasquez (1835-1875)

Tiburcio Vasquez was a Mexican outlaw who wanted to take back California (which had been seized from Mexico) from the Anglos. Handsome and dashing, he was a great ladies' man who was fluent in both English and Spanish. Born in Monterrey, Vasquez had a career as a bandit and horse thief and spent three terms in San Quentin Prison during the 1850s. He was finally captured in a dramatic shoot-out and hanged for murder.
