Description: Photograph of Anglo/foreign soldiers posing for a photograph amid a group of rebels. Quite a few foreigners joined the Mexican Revolution for a variety of reasons, though monetary rewards and adventure were perhaps the two most popular. The group seems to have posed for this impromptu photo in the middle of a lunch break as several cooking and dining utensils are seen on the ground. Several men hold their rifles up in display. On the left hand side of the photo, a man crouches down next to a Colt Automatic Machine Gun. Two notable individuals on the left hand side of the photo are Captain James Charles Bulger (man with a pipe in his mouth), originally from New York who joined Madero's forces in 1911 and Captain Alfred W. Lewis, head of artillery at Ojinaga, next to him. This photo more than likely was taken at the same time as another photo in the collection, titled, "Anglo Revolutionaries". Several of the individuals photographed in that photo are present in this one. Though many are not identified, the tall man near the center of the photo, sporting a mustache and full beard is said to have been known as American Slim.
