On the Mexican Border (1917)

British Pathe just downloaded their collection of historical videos onto YouTube and we've been featuring a few from Texas' past.  Today a video, attributed to "possibly Arizona, New Mexico or Texas," and we thing the terrain and vegetation looks like our own part of the Chihuahuan Desert.

There are many sites in our region with Mexican Revolution history...the revolution was a factor in our region at the time this film clip was produced.  One notable place, still easy to visit and envision the history is Big Bend National Park's Castolon Historic District.  Click here and here to read about this place...and make plans to visit!
