Insurrecto Ambush

Insurrecto Ambush

Date: 1910/1920
Creator: Aultman, Otis A.
Description: Photograph of Insurrectos taking aim at Mexican Federal soldiers. The accompanying information on the back of the photographs simply reads: “Mexico Revolution - Juarez.” Somewhere beyond the tree line is the enemy and these seven insurrectos are taking aim and firing at the Mexican Federal soldiers or Constitutional Soldiers who are hiding beyond this group of trees. Since there are just a few men visible in this photograph, it is very possible to conclude that this is a small scouting party or an ambush patrol that came upon a target of opportunity. One interesting point about this photograph is that are no horses visible in this photograph and that the insurrectos are using both the Winchester style rifles and the bolt action Mauser styles rifles.
