The Abrazo is a tradition that began on Oct. 24, 1960 when Mexico President Adolfo Lopez Mateos and United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a treaty for the construction of what is now Amistad Dam. An embrace between the two presidents was the first of many between dignitaries of the lands on either side of the Rio Grande.
