Viva Senoritas!



This is a fascinating picture of the 1911 Mexican Insurrection. The picture was taken in Ciudad Juarez. Interestingly this band of bandits is made up almost completely of women and children. At the time the picture was taken, there was a contingency of Mexican Federales under the command of Antonio Rábago approaching the town. Not sure the outcome of the conflict, but certainly this is a unique picture of the revolution.

  1. While I could be in error, I believe that Rabago's Constitutionalist Division del Norte Federal was defending the town against the Villistas. They failed and Villa's forces took the town.
