[Anglo Revolutionaries]

Description:

Photograph of a group of Anglo revolutionaries and a few Mexican revolutionaries. The man kneeling down on the right side of the photo appears to be cooking. The Mexican Revolution prompted foreign volunteers to participate in the revolution for a variety of reasons. Many volunteers were called to action in the name of adventure, while others reported to duty as mercenaries. The tall man with a beard, standing directly behind the man hunched over, is said to have been known as American Slim.
