Irish fighting with the Mexicans

November 25, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Just watched this on Eric Johnson’s blog–song by David Rovics about a band of Irishmen and former slaves who joined Mexico in the 1846 war against the U.S.  Movie shown here is One Man’s Hero.  I confess that I am a bit stunned after watching this–no I didn’t cry but close.  Not for the faint of heart.
