                     For her conspiratorial activities, she used the name of Marcos Serrato. In October 1910, she went to San Antonio, Texas, to bring money to her brother, and she was with him on November 18th in the city of Puebla when the Serdán family’s house on Santa Clara Street was attacked by the state police and federal army forces.

 

                     With rifle in hand and with great bravery, she went out onto the balcony of her home to harangue the crowds and was wounded. When the house was overcome by the troops, Carmen, her mother and the wife of Aquiles Serdán were arrested, sent to the La Merced jail and from there to the San Pedro municipal hospital.
