Ojinaga is a city in Chihuahua on the border with Texas.


Ojinaga was founded around the year 1200 by Pueblo Indians. In 1535 it was visited by Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca with a party of four, the survivors of the 1528 shipwreck of a failed mission to explore Florida. It was later the site of the Battle of Ojinaga, as Pancho Villa was being chased all over the region during the Mexican Revolution.
