The assault and capture of the citadel of Chapultepec by forces under Gen. Winfield Scott on September 13, 1848, sealed the fate of Mexico City, and the effective end of the Mexican-American War. The following is a list of brevet promotions granted United States officers for "gallant and meritorious conduct" during the assault.

How many familiar ACW names can you find?

Attached is the full page, from the August 31, 1848, issue of the Washington Daily Union. It lists hundreds more Brevets won during other battles in Mexico -- many of their names, too will be familiar to students of the ACW.
