[Group of Ten Photographs Documenting Training of the 13th Cavalry Regiment During the Border War]

San Antonio: [ca. 1916]. Ten original photographs, plus two real photo postcards. Most 3 x 5 inches, one smaller. Occasional, very minor wear. Images generally crisp and clean. Near Fine. Item #1392

A collection of ten photographs that depict activities of F Troop of the 13th U.S. Cavalry Regiment on the border with Mexico in the vicinity of Columbus, New Mexico, during the mid-1910s. The regiment was assigned to the Army's El Paso border patrol in 1912 and eventually became headquartered in Columbus. In New Mexico, the unit's patrol area consisted of approximately sixty-five miles between Noria and Hermanas; F Troop was stationed in the field near the tiny town of Hachita. The regiment played a key role in defending against Pancho Villa's 1916 raid on Columbus, and took part in Pershing's Punitive Expedition, which served as retaliation for the attack. The images here show members of the troop in training, heading out on patrol, in their field camp, at attention during inspection, and horsing around. The versos of most photographs are stamped, "Fox Tone Print, Fox Co., San Antonio." Also present are two photo postcards showing I Troop of the 2nd U.S. Cavalry, which was also briefly stationed at El Paso. A nice group.
