 The Battle of Monterey, 1846   (Site not responding. Last check: )
While the Mexicans were flying over the hill, the Texians also, with their unerring rifles, poured on them a most destructive fire, and in several instances, both horse and rider were seen to bound some feet into the air, and then fall dead, tumbling down the hill.
Here we met the 7th Infantry; and as the men reached the base of the hill, a fire was immediately opened by the Texians, who commenced ascending the steep and rocky cliffs, pouring into the enemy the fire of their deadly rifles, which made them stagger and retreat towards the crest.
The din of battle between the two armies ceased, and the valley of Monterey sank once more to repose; and, save the occasional ightning's flash, and the roaring of the thunder of heaven, which, as it were, re-enacted the scene of the deadly conflict of the day, all became, hushed.
