Mexico Revolution in 1910


This photo was created by Ramos, Manuel in 1913. It belongs to the collection of Mexico: Photographs, Manuscripts, and Imprints from DeGolyer Library of Southern Methodist University. It was believed a photo illustrated Mexico Revolution in 1910-1920, a scene outside National Palace during the outbreaks. The corps on the photo were humans and horses. The clam and cold of the corps on the plaza before the city house reflected the cruelty and wildness of the outbreak. The death presented the weakness of humanity.
