The images in this album were taken during the ten days of revolution in Mexico City in February 1913 known as the Decena Trágica. There are numerous images of both forces defending their outposts (the Felicista forces in the Ciudadela, and the Federal troops at the National Palace). The aftermath of the various battles is depicted in photographs of fallen soldiers and civilians and views of damaged public buildings and private residences, including Francisco Madero's burned home and the buildings that housed the El Heraldo and Nuevo Era newspapers. Several dramatic images depict residents fleeing from their homes as the fighting encroaches upon them, and small groups of people staring at the burned corpses of fighters lying in the streets.
