An action filled scene showing the storming of the walls in the middle ground while in the right foreground an American slashes a Mexican officer’s neck as his troops look on helplessly. The taking of this fortification was a turning point in the battle. Curiously, some of the Mexican troops are wearing fur shakoes.
