Thank you for putting these up .
Fortunately photography and film was present in the war.
Many of the pictures are good enough to show uniform detail.
That helps me sculpt figures. :)

Just to "push in" and promote the FM rules.
Ciudad Juarez took place in 1911.
This makes it very early in the war.
Armies would be  "government army first half" versus "Northern rebels".

A small government garrison was besieged and assaulted by a 2500 rebel force.

The rebels won (Villa and Orozco).
This helped lead to the old Dictator DIAZ to make a run for it (i.e sign a treaty, rob the treasury, off the France).

This was my main source for battle-damaged buildings and a sense of mexican street design... gettyimages are also a very rich seam of images for the mexican revolution...

They are really useful photos. The bullet damage to the buildings is very evident.
