Slaget ved Buena Vista
Slaget ved Buena Vista under den mexicansk-amerikanske krig begynte ved Buena Vista, ca. 12 km sør for Saltillo i det nordlige Mexico. Den tallmessig underlegne amerikanske hæren på omtrent 4 500 mann under generalene Zachary Taylor og John E. Wool brukte tungt artilleri mot den tallmessig langt sterkere mexicanske hæren på omtrent 15 000 mann under Antonio López de Santa Anna – kjent fra slaget om Alamo og krigen mot Texas i 1836.

De mexicanske styrkene trakk seg tilbake dagen etter og etterlot seg 591 døde, 1 048 sårede og 1 894 savnede. Amerikanerne hadde 267 drepte, 387 sårede og 6 savnet
