This is a panoramic photograph showing a camp at Eagle Pass, Texas, where the Kansas National Guard stayed during the Mexican Punitive Expedition. The Mexican Punitive Expedition was a military operation conducted by the United States Army with an additional four thousand Kansas guardsmen called for federal service against the paramilitary forces of Mexican revolutionary Francisco Pancho Villa. The guardsmen served from March 14, 1916, to February 7, 1917, under the command of General Frederick Funston. Many of the men that served in the Mexican Punitive Expedition went on to serve in World War I.
