Allmost on t~ exact ground on which tc
was fought a century before the battle R
of Buena Vista another fight occurred
between the Mexicans and Americans, di
in which the women took a counspicu
t ous part. But. unfortunately for Gen
eral Pollywottle, the American co- d
Swmander, it was his first fight with such td
an auxiliary, and he was utterly igno
v rant of certain provisions he should p
,f have made to guard against contingen
i cies to which they were liable.
b In this respect the Mexican com
- mander, Antonio Rodriguez Busta- d
mento, proved greatly the American's
. superior. The Mexicans were drawn d
up in line of battle to resist the ad
a vance of the Americans, who hurled
themselves against their enemy with
great vigor. The woman's brigade, be
n ing a part of the reserve, stood under
r- arms, impatiently waiting to be led
forward. Colonel Amanda Patterson
of the First regiment sat her horse su
r perbly, resplendent in a uniform cut
it and decorated in a fashion that excited
Ie the admiration and envy of the whole
corps. Major Mildred Fortescue rode
over to Colonel Patterson to ask her
it who was her tailor. Colonel Patterson
t. refused to give the information. This
y, led to hot words between the two, in
y which many of their subordinates join- d
.- ed, and before long their shrill words
d could be heard above the singing bul- a
t lets and shrieking shells.
.u "For heaven's sake," roared the
e American commander to an aid, "send
