October 16, 1909

For the first time in their country’s history, American President William H. Taft and Mexican President Porfirio Díaz met for a summit in the El Paso-Juarez border to negotiate over the land commonly known as El Chamizal.

President Taft hosted a traditional, conservative luncheon at the El Paso Chamber of commerce. President Diaz, staying true to his demeanor, served an opulent dinner in the old Federal Customs building in Juarez. Private discussions were had and plans were made.
