Found a few obscure pics from that revolution that weren't captioned so I'm not able to add descriptions. I did notice Winchester rifles were just as popular as Mauser bolt actions. I'll try to add more later.

Notice the railcar shows CB&Q = Chicago Burlington and Quincy RR - an American RR.

This was another conflict in which some of the combatants were quite young. This boy appears to be part of the Mexican Army.

More images of this somewhat confusing revolution. I have trouble sorting out who is fighting against - or for - whom.

Soldaderas or female soldiers. Women played an active role in the revolution. Again, notice all the Winchester rifles.

Troops of General Salagar travelling by train to a battle. They appear to be rebels.

Appears to be Native Americans. One of the revolution's causes was the return of tribal lands.

These are regular army troops, but to whom they're loyal remains to be seen.

Possibly related.

Major Klos' machinegun battalion. They have 1914 Colt or Marlin "potato digger" MGs.

Regular Army troops. Closest soldier may have a Japanese Type 30 rifle.

Native Mexicans? There are what very much appear to be Mescalero Apaches shown.
According to the original caption, this was taken in Chihuaha, so probably Western Apache or Pima?

These videos have old footage and photos in them but also songs that were popular at the time.
