[Adobe Cook-House at Glenn Springs, Texas]

Description: Postcard of an "Adobe Cook-House at Glenn Springs, Texas in which 9 U.S. Soldiers made their Defense against Mexican Bandits". These are some, if not all, all of the same soldiers that are also pictured in postcard WH PC 189-001 https://edit.texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth187877/ The adobe structure in this image appears to have suffered some fire damage. We cannot positively identify the adobe structure in this postcard as being the same adobe structure in postcard WH PC 189-001 however most of the soldiers are the same if not all the same. This postcard appears to be an "after" picture and the aforementioned postcard appears to be the "before" picture. Presumably the "before" and "after" postcard after the battle with the alleged Mexican bandits - not shown in either postcard. The soldiers are armed with service rifles and some of the soldiers are also carrying service revolvers in their holsters. The location is Glenn Springs, Texas in the Big Bend National Park.
