February 22, 1847

“We knew then that we would get into a battle and we made them mountains echo again and again as we marched towards the enemy. We had not gone far when we first saw them. They were marching towards us but they did not dismay us for each and everyone gave them a few yells as loud as we could call. Although they were nearly two miles off they heard us for they halted and commenced maneuvering.”

– William H. Daniel, 2nd Kentucky Infantry
writing about the afternoon of February 22, 1847, 6 miles south of Saltillo, Mexico, near the pass of La Angostura
