These pictures are originally from the tract published by the Korean Provisonal Government, "Korean Independence Movement" (Shanghai: Oriental Press, 1919).
Its publisher and press are known now by the efforts of the archivists of Union Theological Semianry in New York.
See http://www.columbia.edu/cu/lweb/digital/collections/cul/texts/ldpd_7705012_000/ 
I posted it on my webpage last fall: http://koreanchristianity.humnet.ucla.edu/sources/tracts
And the last photo in the Matt's blog, the execution of three Korean righteous army soldiers on the crosses, was not taken in 1919, but 1907 (or 1908).
See B. L. Wheale, Coming Struggle in East Asia, (London: Macmillan, 1909), p. 518.

> We commemorate March 1, 1919 as we can, each year. If anyone has not seen it, there is a very interesting page about the ways in which the March 1 Movement was covered in the American press, mainly the NY Times, published by Matt in his Blog in March 2008 http://populargusts.blogspot.com/2008/03/battle-for-american-perceptions-of.html A few days later Matt also published a page of remarkable photos of the demonstrations and the consequences http://populargusts.blogspot.com/2008/03/unseen-photos-of-samil-movement-1919.html 
> Today is a good day to look at them, I think. Thank you, Matt.
