" We were aroused...by firing of a...cannon...succeeded [followed] immediately by the... tramp of a body men. A dense fog obscured [hid] them from actual observation until they had advanced into the public square...when the fog disappeared discovering[revealing] to us that we were surrounded on all sides by the bodies of regular [Mexican] troops."
