The next event chronicled is the arrival of Francisco Madero in Mexico City in 1911, whose bid for the presidency ushered in a new phase of the Mexican revolution. Next are a few views of the early battles of the Mexican revolution in Ciudad Juárez and other locations (1911-1912), followed by numerous scenes from the Decena Trágica of February 9-18, 1913. 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 battle 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 in the city streets. There are also images related to the executions of Madero and Suárez, and several of Díaz and Huerta after their coup. The final four images in the album are of the catastrophe at Tacubaya. The album concludes with several newspaper clippings that summarize the events of the years 1910-1913.
