February 22, 1847, 6 Miles South of Saltillo, Mexico

“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
