Salas orders that various medals be struck and awarded to soldiers who participated in battles against United States forces. The medals are described in detail and will have on them the dates of the actions in which the recipient participated. Warning is given to those who are compiling the lists of recipients not to include those who do not qualify. At this point, these medals were hard-earned, since the Mexican army had yet to win a battle.
