San Patricio Batallion, Former U.S army

I am from Ireland and i joined the U.S army.I started as a drill master at the west point in this location men were trained to become soldiers.

Later on i was sent to Mexico to invade there country,i did not like this because this reminded me of my country and there difficulties.
