An image full of American pride showing Ampudia and his entourage, hats in hand, addressing Taylor, who, with chest puffed out, orders them out of the city with a pointed gesture. Taylor is backed up by massed troops. Despite the tenor of the scene, Taylor allowed the Mexican army to retreat with full military honors and their weapons.
