Teddy Roosevelt at the Battle of San Juan Hill?
Pancho Villa about 1916 during his rebellion against the Mexican government- may have been taken in northern Mexico or in a border U.S. state - President Wilson sent U.S. troops under John J. Pershing's command to run him down - can't remember the details of what happened to him
Looks like David Boon (former Australian cricket batsman) on a horse. He is alleged to have once consumed 52 cans of beer on a flight from Sydney to London in 1989, in a story that is considered by some to be part of Australian sporting legend.http://www.davidboon.com.au/
Obviously this is a copy of the etching: "Congress Leaving Washington"This was supposedly the image of various legislators leaving the capital for one of their often enjoyed vacations. The wagon on the right is filled with gold received for the various votes they cast for the "correct" groups. This is not a historically significant piece as this was, and still is, an oft reoccurring event. However these copies fetch a fair price at various small auctions around the country and on eBay.
All of these are fine answers, but only one is correct. If I were still teaching, I could give some good grades for creative writing, but not for history. This is Pancho Villa. Thanks for playing. I loved the other answers.
Thanks for the clarification. Now it is evident that the scene captures "Don" Pancho Villa heading for the Rio Grande with a wagon filled with Acapulco Gold.
I can tell you it's a jpeg file which represents a sepia-toned photograph centered on a rider followed by other riders, passing a wagon being pulled by a team of mules.
Well, Scot, I believe you've nailed down the obvious. Proud of you, son.After teaching at Bridgeport for several decades, Bill finds it preferable to have several chances at the answer.
