Bullock Texas State History Museum presents Life and Death on the Border: 1910-1920, featuring rare artifacts, photographic records, court documents, newspapers, family histories, and eyewitness accounts examine life along the Texas-Mexico border at a pivotal period in history.

As much of the nation's attention was focused overseas on the first World War, the border region was experiencing its own violent conflict. Fueled by concerns over revolution in Mexico, longstanding fears and prejudices gave rise to violence, vigilantism, and retaliation in the decade between 1910-1920. In the aftermath, the Mexican American civil rights movement was born.

Exhibition runs until April 3.
