Sample text

La Angosture provided Taylor with a natural defensive stronghold. Bordered to the east and west by ridges of the Sierra Madre, it would serve to funnel the Mexican troops into the battle, instead of allowing them to maneuver against the American flanks. Gorges on the left flank, and deep gullies on the right, only served to add to the strength of the position, which was a total of only two miles wide. Santa Anna would be sorely restricted in the use of his artillery and cavalry, and would have to depend largely on his infantry to dislodge Taylor’s army from this natural bastion.

Lombardini was wounded, and command of the division passed to F. Perez, who changed front and pressed against the retiring Americans. This left the 2nd Illinois, a troop of dragoons, and the guns of French 30 GENERAL GEORGE H. THOMAS and Thomas, on the left and right of the 2nd Illinois, as the only troops still holding the line. French and Thomas poured a terrible fire into the ranks of the oncoming Mexicans, but they could not halt their advance. Perez’s men overlapped the left flank and rear of the 2nd Illinois, threatening to drive them from the field.

The Americans, by and large, stopped firing, out of respect for the flags of truce, but the volume of fire from the Mexican line continued unabated. Mexican troops that had been caught against the base of the mountain took advantage of the truce to withdraw from their exposed position and reform. Santa Anna then called forward all of his reserves, throwing them against the American line in an all-out effort to break through. The 2nd Kentucky and 1st Illinois took heavy casualties from fire on their right flank, and the men ran from the position to take refuge in the nearest gorge.
