Photograph of General Alvaro Obregon (2nd from the left with a large light colored hat), Major General Frederick Funston (3rd from the left in uniform), Major General Hugh L. Scott (4th from the left with glasses), and an unidentified individual (1st from the left in a dark suit and hat) at the El Paso International Bridge on April 28, 1916.

Note:

Generals Scott and Funston were sent to El Paso by President Wilson to speak with General Obregon concerning Mexico's (and Venustiano Carranza's) demand that U.S. forces withdraw from Mexico, thus suspending the ongoing Punitive Expedition. The trio was to come to some sort of amicable agreement that fulfilled both nations' wants. While the first formal session of the El Paso-Juarez Conference (as some scholars call it) occurred on April 29, 1916, the group is known to have met prior informally. This photo may have captured one of those meetings since it is dated to have been taken on April 28, 1916.
