    More Information:

    On October 9, 1847, Samuel Heintzelman arrived at Huamantla only moments after Samuel Walker died from his wounds. Heintzelman lost control of his men, who, along with most of the other U.S. soldiers, began indiscriminately killing Mexicans and plundering the town in revenge.

    Over a decade later, Major Heintzelman worked with another Texan-Rip Ford-to bring peace to the Rio Grande Valley during the Cortina War. Together they decisively defeated Juan Cortina's forces at the Battle of Rio Grande City on December 27, 1859.
