Members of the Korniloff Infantry Regiment in the outskirts of Kharkov. This regiment is named after the remarkable personality, who, if permitted by Karinski, could probably have prevented the downfall of the Duma and the sensational coup of the Bolsheviks in November 1917. General Korniloff pleaded with Karinski for severe measures, and was backed up by the "division savage", which idolized him

The Bolsheviks were especially hostile to all forms of religious worship. In the town of Kharkov they tortured men before the altar of one church. In another church of the same city they exposed the sacred objects and lined men up in front of them to be shot. In the church of Borki they scalped the priest when he was at his duties and left him in the church to die. This photograph illustrates the destruction they have made upon certain sacred symbols while they were in control of Ekaterinodar. The crosses were torn from the walls and stamped, and crucifixes were broken with axes. These relics of an Ekaterinodar church were presented to Major Dexter, of the Red Cross Unit, that he might take them to America and make known by these possible proofs the irrational hostility of the Bolsheviks to the things which others find sacred

A corner of the prison yard at the Kharkov Institution. This prison was used to hold the victims which Bolshevik Court condemned to death in wholesale fashion. The heap of litter in the corner is full of ghastly fragments of bone, mute but eloquent testimony of the horrid scenes that have taken place in this compound. The stains on the wall, and lower stains now covered by the heap of refuse were made by the daily executions in which the condemned stood in a line, hands tied behind their backs and facing the tow of soldiers, to be shot. This photograph was taken by the American Red Cross personnel, who for purposes of Distributing medical supplies, was attached to the Units of the Volunteer Army
