Today we show a picture from the 1911 Mexican Revolution/Insurrection. The photo shows a group of Bandits/Insurrectionists/Freedom Fighters. I consider this photo to be a classic. The men are stationed on the point of a ridge, with what looks like greater than a 180 degree field of fire. They are perfectly positioned for an ambush on the road below. They have proper hats, and have the scruffy look we would expect in such a group. As you can imagine, I would like to see more ammunition in the form of bullet belts around the shoulders, but perhaps given that they are camped here, they have their ammo nearby at the ready. The rocks provide excellent cover, and they are definitely well positioned on the high ground.
