"Battle of Palo Alto"

The Battle of Palo Alto, on May 8, 1846, was the first battle of the Mexican War. Led by General Zachary Taylor, the U.S. army defeated Mexico's army, which was commanded by General Mariano Arista (1802-1855). While Zachary Taylor went on to become president of the United States, Mariano Arista went on to become president of Mexico. Underneath is printed "May 8th, 1846, between 2900 Americans under Genl. Taylor, and 6000 Mexicans, commanded by Genl. Arista. The Mexicans were driven from the ground with great loss. - It is remarkable for being the first battle of the war."
