The Longoria Affair: The Wake of An American Killed In Action
In Three Rivers, Texas, the only funeral home in town refused to hold a wake for Felix Longoria, a decorated Mexican American World War II soldier killed in battle. Longoria’s widow was told, “The whites wouldn’t like it.” The incident fueled the rise of a national civil rights movement led by Mexican American veterans, and bitterly divided Three Rivers for generations.
