Images of the Decena Trágica, the ten days of fighting between the Felicistas (followers of Félix Díaz) and federalist troops led by General Huerta, include scenes in and around the Plaza de la Constitutión and the Palacio Nacional, the Ciudadela (government arsenal and stronghold of the Felicistas), and the calles Balderas and other residential areas. Both the fighting and its aftermath are depicted, with an emphasis on the death and destruction found in the city streets.
