布宜纳.威斯塔之战 (Battle of Buena Vista)

1847223日,有14千名墨西哥士兵对扎卡里.泰勒 (Zachary Tylor) 将军带领的小型部队发动进攻。由于有炮火上的优势,泰勒将军这支只有5000人的部队成功击退由安东尼奥.罗培兹.圣塔.安那 (Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna) 将军率领的墨西哥军队。在夜晚降临时,墨西哥军队撤退了,虽然这意味着布宜纳.威斯塔之战的退出,但美墨战争却仍然持续着。 

布宜纳.威斯塔战争是在墨西哥北方的蒙特瑞 (Monterrey) 进行。美国与墨西哥的战争并不是为了独立或其他政治因素,而是为了争夺更多领土。泰勒将军正是参与这类战争的主要人物。

On February 23, 1847, 14,000 Mexican troops charged General Zachary Taylor's small command of soldiers. Using heavy artillery, the general's 5,000 men turned back the Mexican army led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. By nightfall, the Mexican army retreated, ending the Battle of Buena Vista, but not the Mexican-American War.

The Battle of Buena Vista was fought near Monterrey in northern Mexico. The American war with Mexico was not for independence or for political reasons but to obtain more land. General Taylor was just the man to fight that sort of war.
