Title Photographs of the mobilization of the Wisconsin National Guard's 1st Infantry Regiment [ca. 1916].
Date [ca. 1916]
Event Mexican Border War
Description Five photographs probably of a parade in support of the mobilization of the Wisconsin National Guard's 1st Infantry Regiment to the Mexican border taken by Floyd Kinsman on East Washington Avenue in Madison, Wisconsin. The photographs depict soldiers in full military attire on horseback, on foot, and riding in wagons and in military supply trucks. These soldiers are wearing canvas leggings instead of wool, which indicates that they probably served along the Mexican border, rather than overseas in Europe during World War I. Most likely, this was the parade referred to in the Madison Democrat (June 20, 1916) in which the 1st infantry regiment was mobilized to combat the Pancho Villa raids along the Mexican border.
