MEXICAN REVOLUTION BATTLE OF CIUDAD JUAREZ PHOTO GROUPING
Excellent group of 17 photographs, each 4 1/4" x 3 1/4" b/w, all taken by a store owner in Juarez, Mexico and all but two showing events during the Juarez uprising and the immediate aftermath. The photos, most captioned on the verso, show released prisoners joining the ranks of the revolutionaries, armed men in the streets, destroyed buildings, and American soldiers sent to protect American citizens and their interests. Very good. The Battle of Ciudad Ju‡rez took place in April and May 1911 between federal forces loyal to President Porfirio D’az and rebel forces of Francisco Madero, during the Mexican Revolution. Pascual Orozco and Pancho Villa commanded Madero's army, which besieged Ciudad Ju‡rez, Chihuahua. After two days of fighting the city's garrison surrendered and Orozco and Villa took control of the town.
