Title: Earthquake, San Francisco, California, 1906

Description: A soldier orders civilians to get in line for food and clothing during relief work following the Great San Francisco Earthquake; General Frederick Funston ordered his troops at the Presidio to enter the city where military command was imposed to suppress widespread looting and rape (although marital law was never officially declared); his soldiers carried loaded weapons and, as this image shows, bayonets were fixed and often used to prod citizens reluctant to obey orders; the quake began at 5:12 a.m., and registered 7.8 on the Richter Scale; its resulting shocks, aftershocks and fires caused an estimated 3,000 deaths (some of these lives were taken by soldiers shooting looters or those men attacking women);
