The US Army court-martialled them; the Mexican government erected a monument to them. Miller (history, Calif. State U. at Hayward) tells the story of the Americans (many, but not all of whom were Irish immigrants) who deserted the US Army to fight with the Mexicans, and thus he portrays the motivations and conflicts of the times.
