About Angostura Battlefield

Angostura Battlefield in Mexico is the location of an important clash in the Mexican-American War.

The battle occurred on February 23, 1847 near the town of Angostura and saw an American army under the command of General Zachary Taylor hold off an attack from a larger Mexican force commanded by General Antonio López de Santa Anna. The encounter was called "The Battle of Buena Vista" by the Americans and "La Batalla de Angostura" by the Mexicans.

Today a small memorial marking this important battle can be seen just off the main road in Angostura. There is also a museum dedicated to the battle in nearby Saltillo.
