The Mexican War journals and other papers of Marine Second Lieutenant Henry Bulls Watson came to the division's attention by way of the late Mr. Ralph W. Donnelly. The journals, three in number, cover the periods 11 January 1845 to 20 May 1846, 21 May 1846 to 5 May 1848, and 9 July 1846 to 22 December 1846 when Lieutenant Watson commanded the Marine guard on board the Sloop of War Portsmouth.
