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.
