Overview

"Agua! por amor Dios, agua-aguita!" (Water! for the love of God, a little water!)
I heard these words, as I lay in my tent, on the field of Cerro Gordo.
It was the night after the battle bearing this name-fought between the American and Mexican armies in the month of April, 1847.
The routed regiments of Santa Anna-saving some four thousand men captured upon the ground-had sought safety in flight, the greater body taking the main road to Jalapa, pursued by our victorious troops; while a large number, having sprawled down the almost perpendicular cliff that overhangs the "Rio del Plan" escaped, unperceived and unpursued, into the wild chapparals that cover the piedmont of Peroté.
Among these last was the lamé tyrant himself, or rather should I say, at their head leading the retreat. This has always been his favourite position at the close of a battle that has gone against him; and a score of such defeats can be recorded.
