A Desperate Engagement During th Conflict Witt Mtxico, in Which Missouri Troops Were Concerned The following account of th battle of Moro, New Mexico, whiei occurred January 24, 1S47, is re published from the Washington 'Vedette of May, 18SS. It will be o particular interest to the veteran of the war with Mexico, now at tending the reunion in Chillicothe and of general interest as giving aome idea of the hardships tha the Missouri troops underwen during that campaign. Mr. Hudgins says: Dear Comrade: In looking over the report of the Centennia Reunion, which you published ii 1S7(i. and of the doings of the vet erans of the war with Mexico. J notice in the interesting oratioi if d'eneral Criltenden he states that Captain llendley's force which marched on Moro, at th :ime of the massacre, was 20 1 nen. This is a- mistake. I was with him. under Captain Mc- Ivamy. -There was not (all told) jft'iccrs. privates and irnides to ex- :eed seventy-five men. llendle.v was in command of -H graxing :amp on the I'ecos near Anton L'liico. with the horses that be- onged 1o Willock's Battalion, imething near one hundred nen.

When Ihe express brought vord of the massacre in the Taos alley and at Moro. with orders or MeKamy to report to Ilend- .',v, two of our boys, Helm and '.uckner, I think, carried the or- ers through to lleudley and ronght orders in return from lendley In our command to meet im (Ilendley) at, ten o'clock next ay at .Las Vegas 1'ass. We were on time, having eaten vhat little rations we had before aylight. We marched along on ur half-starved horses, but had o wait until near dark before lendley came up. I shall never orget the stamping around our amp fires of smoking pine logs in those fearful nigjits. the wind lowling and the snow living, and mr poor, half-starved horses :hivering in 'the blixxard that vonld almost lift us oil' our feet, vhile we. poor devils, would tamp and dance to keep fronj There were only two nen in our command who had ivercoats. Must of us were dress•d in homespun jeans, as we i'lir- lished our owii clothing and lorses. and when we left home ve thought we were going to Cal- fornia and would not need heavy lothing. Consequently we did- lot have the means to purchase olhing in New Mexico, and even we did there was none to be lad ; so, half clad, we spent the if .lS4(i-47, one of- the lardest ever experienced in New Mexico, in tents: and. wlien- couting. often lay down on the now or fro/en ground, with one bin home-made blanket to pro- ect us from the weather. Our ra- ions most of the time consisted )f one pint of Taos flour, and this nade from Mexican wheat, u limited, and ground with lots of traw and other filth in it; coffee md sugar good, both in quantity md quality; meat, sometimes lalf enough, sometimes none at ill, but never full rations of that. But to resume._ After Ilendley ame up we marched into Vegas- hat night, and just as we were ibout, to take our coffee and Taos ji.scuil; the bugle sounded to ral- -, and we left our suppers un- mclied and fell in. Ilendley ailed for volunteers. The enemy. •2(i() strong, was marching on the .town, but a short distance off; seventy 'oil us volunteered, thirty from McKamy's command and forty from lleudley's. McKamy was put in command, with forty men dismounted, the balance mounted. We marched five miles out on the Sapello road and found the enemy was not on that road. We then marched across to the upper town, but the Mexicans had dodged us. We got into camp af- jter midnight, without .having had [a mouthful to eat since 4 o'clock in the morning before, making fifteen miles afoot after night. The next day the expedition to Moro was organ ixed, the men 'again volunteering,'thirty from ! MeKamy's and forty from Hencl- tenant Owens, of Company C, fliid could not sec it. The Mexicans Second Lieutenant McKamy, of i opened tire upon us just as we Company A. as company officers -went into the ditch pell meil. of the expedition. It was late thu day before we gut. started. and marched until nearly dark, Our advance guard came so near capturing a picket of the enemy that we got his horse, the fellow himself escaping by jumping down a cliff and hiding among the rocks.

This, with our pound of flour made into bread with water, without salt, and cooked on a green pine-stick fire, which made taste like turpentine, consistei of our supper and breakfast tha time. As it was a bitter cob night, with our scant raiment am thin blankets and fro/en around von may be sure we slept but lit Before daylight we were in tin saddle. After we mounted llend ey made a short speech to tin nen. which amounted to this, that u: hoped and expected us to d< mr duly. As we marched 01 Moro. six miles off. it began snow- ng. and after a short lapse ol ime we encountered one of the vorst snowstorms [ ever saw. T vind howling down trie canon ml bringing the snow from oil' he limber of (he mountains, if eemed for a while it woul mother us sure as well as blind is. We could not see twenty feet rom us. but as the road was lirough the canon we could not liss it. The storm ceased just as ve reached the valley. The lirst iinch we discovered, about half mile from town, had been own- I by a Frenchman, who had been mrdered. The place had been niipletely sacked, nothing but le bare walls of his house left, list as we got to this ranch the [exit-ails sent out a Frenchman ith a flag, who advised us to vamoose." That they were from >0 to -1UO strong, and had sent leir women and children oil', and •ere prepared and would give us no quarter." Our officers held a council in le ranch house as lo our mode l r procedure. Ilendley and Mc- Ka'niy were for the attack. Owens for falling back and awaiting re- enforcements, artillery, etc. As they had a fortified town, adobe walls, pickets, etc., f thought myself we would lose very heavily but believed we could whip them. Before the council had broken up some eight or ten Mexicans who had been on picket and had taken the short cut over the mountain, and had been caught by the storm and detained, so that we got ahead of them, were seen approaching down the valley. As soon as they were discovered llend ley sen I MeKa'my with eight men to intercept them. As he was about to overtake and capture them the Mexicans came out from the town to their rescue and drove MeKamy back and formed their line of battle in the cornfields, about lot) or l.'ill yards from the walls of the town. The town was about 'J50 or :'.0() yards square, with lines of adobe houses joined together, except in two places, which was occupied by cedar pickets eight feet high one two-story L adobe building at the northwest angle, and a wooden block at the southeast angle. The two-story building was pierced with loop holes for small arms and one embrasure for cannon (but no cannon), all in the upper story. When we saw them forming the order was given to mount and form; and as soon as we formed we charged. It was down a gentle slope for 'about 300 yards to the cornfield. At the edge of the field was water-ditch, eight or ten feet wide and three or four feet deep.
