1915 Dodge Touring Car with Bullet Holes from Pancho Villa Raid

Archibald Douglass Frost, his wife Mary Alice and their 6-month-old son fled Columbus in this Dodge Touring Car during the Pancho Villa raid. Mr. Frost was shot twice, and the vehicle was sprayed with gunfire as they sped through Columbus towards Deming. Mary Alice, an inexperienced driver, had to take the wheel on several occasions. The three arrived in Deming and, upon examining the Dodge, they found numerous bullet holes, including two through the driver’s seat. Frost carried one of the bullets in his body for the rest of his life.
