Description: The postcard caption reads: Drilling Cavalry on the Mexican Border. According to the postcard author this is Troop D, 8th Cavalry; please see WH PC 180-027a. There is no accompanying information on the true location of where this event was captured. However, because of the large mature trees in the background, this location was most likely in the area of Camp Stewart near Cordova Island. Fort Bliss on Lanoria Mesa did not have very many mature trees in clusters such as the tree seen in this postcard. The second cavalryman from the right has his service revolver pointed in the air. This postcard is an exact duplicate of [Cavalry Drilling Exercise – Duplicate] – WH PC 180-027a and [Cavalry Drilling Exercise] – WH PC 180-045.
