According to the press release, Mexican government and the National Institute of Anthropology and History will virtually commemorate the 174th anniversary of the Battle of Churubusco, which took place on August 20, 1847.

The virtual commemoration will be attended by the Irish Embassy in Mexico, Bagpipe Band of St. Patrick Battalion, Mexican Consulate in Salt Lake City, Regional Museum of Pueble (MUREP), Fort of Guadalupe Museum as well as the Ibero-American Genealogical Association.

As to the books of history, in the first half of the nineteenth century, Mexico emerged as an independent nation, with a vast extension ranging from its border with Guatemala (south) to what is today the North American Midwest, bordering the Oregon province.

Northern territories had a scattered population and scarce economic resources, so they were easy targets for expansionist interests of the United States that firstly created the Republic of Texas.

From 1846 to 1848, Mexico made a large stand against US forces, resulting in the loss of more than half of its territory. From the port of Veracruz, in 1847, the US forces took some coastal towns and moved along the Cortés route towards Mexico City.
