ABSTRACT
This article presents the tragic story of the San Patricio battalion. The San Patricios were also called the "Colorados" or "Red Company" because many of them were red-headed. Besides native Americans, they were composed of half a dozen nationalities and came from every branch of the service such as infantry, cavalry, and artillery. They manned Mexican guns in the defense of Monterrey whose storming cost the Americans heavy casualties.
