Wounded Man

Description: Photograph of a wounded man. This unidentified wounded man is being carried into this building by several members of the Mexican Red Cross. During the Mexican Revolution, the Mexican Red Cross of Ciudad Juarez was also being assisted by doctors and nurses from El Paso. The man at the far right is wearing the medical Red Cross symbol on his left shoulder. How the wounded man received his injuries is not known nor can the severity of his injuries be determined from the angle of this photograph. It is also not clear if the wounded man is a Mexican Revolucionario or just a regular civilian. An unknown Mexican civilian is also assisting the Red Cross personnel. The location is Ciudad Juarez.

Wounded Mexican

Description: Photograph of an unknown wounded Mexican individual. There is no accompanying information given about this photograph. The four men are carrying the wounded person to an unknown destination, perhaps to a waiting horse and wagon. The individual is presumed alive and wounded because there is no coffin and also because the top blanket is not completely draping the entire body. A train is visible in the distant background. It seems very reasonable to conclude that the wounded individual just came off that train. Another uncertainty about this photograph is whether the individual, who is being carried, is male or female. Lastly, we also do not know if the wounded person is an innocent civilian or an active participant of the Mexican Revolution.

[Yaqui Indians on Lookout]

Description: Photograph of two Yaqui Indians standing atop a small hill partially covered by brush looking off into the distance. Both men are sparsely dressed, wearing only loin cloths, yet they have their rifles ready at hand. Many Yaqui Indians participated in the Mexican Revolution, fighting alongside revolutionaries as they rebelled against the many abuses the Mexican Government had inflicted upon them throughout the years.
