Historical Note

The Mexican Revolution (1910-1920) caused a great many disturbances along the Texas-Mexico border. A number of photographers spent valuable time in the region recording events, primarily troop movements in Texas and political and military activities in Mexico. Two of these photographers, D. W. Hoffman and F. C. Hecox, are represented in this collection.
