ghashmariSaint Patrick Battalion

The Saint Patrick’s Battalion (Spanish: Batallón de San Patricio) was a unit of several hundred immigrants and expatriates of European descent and fought as part of the Mexican Army against the United States in the Mexican-American War of 1846 to 1848. Many of the battalion’s members deserted or defected from the U.S. Army. Primarily made up of Irish and German immigrants, the battalion also included Canadians, English, French, Italians, Poles, Scots, Spaniards, native Mexicans and Swiss, mainly Roman Catholics.[1] Disenfranchised Americans were also in the ranks, including, remarkably, African Americans who were, prior to joining the battalion, slaves to American Southerners.[2] Coming from many different national and ethnic backgrounds, all members of the battalion were granted Mexican citizenship upon entering Mexican service — none of the members, except for the few Americans, had ever been U.S. citizens.

U.S. regiments members of the battalion are known to have deserted from include the 1st Artillery, the 2nd Artillery, the 3rd Artillery, the 4th Artillery, the 2nd Dragoons, the 2nd Infantry, the 3rd Infantry, the 4th Infantry, the 5th Infantry, the 6th Infantry, the 7th Infantry, and the 8th Infantry.[3]

The battalion served as artillery for much of the war, and despite later being formally designated as infantry, it still retained artillery pieces throughout the conflict. In many ways the battalion acted as the sole Mexican counter-balance to the U.S. innovation of “flying artillery”. 5 years ago

frannybooi know i'm bored and boring

i need new things to talk about or at least find new ways to engage. i’m so detached and unengaged most of the time that i let words bounce off me rather than absorbing and maybe learning. maybe if i force myself to learn, i will find more hooks to catch on. 5 years ago


Dawnia117I actually learned two things today....

First, I learned that there is an average of 178 sesame seeds on a McDonald’s Big Mac bun… and the second thing I learned was that 35% of the people who place a personal ad in a paper are married!

I actually looked these random facts up online but I plan on learning things in different ways each day. Either by web surfing, or observation in real life, however new information comes to me. 6 years ago


PolarmouseFood, then transportation

The first domestication of the horses was probably in the steppes of central Asia between 3000 and 4000 B.C. These first animals were kept for meat and milk. As early man became more mobile undoubtedly horses began to be used as pack animals.

PolarmousePope blesses coffee

Coffee first arrived on the European continent by means of Venetian trade merchants. Once in Europe this new beverage fell under harsh criticism from the Catholic church. Many felt the pope (Pope Clement VIII) should ban coffee, calling it the drink of the devil. To their surprise, the pope, already a coffee drinker, blessed coffee declaring it a truly Christian beverage.
