Por : Pablo Ramos










libro de nuestro amigo Chris Dishman.










Como el ejercito de ocupación norteamericano estaba en Monterrey desde el año de 1846, se encontró en medio de la celebración del 4 de Julio de 1847 fuera de su país, así que un grupo de oficiales y soldados, voluntarios salieron de Monterrey hacia el campamento militar americano localizado en el bosque de Santo Domingo en San Nicolás de los Garza Nuevo León, ahí en sendos discursos se conmemoro un aniversario mas de la Independencia de los Estados Unidos de 1776. este emotivo discurso estubo acompañados de insinuaciones de la candidatura a la presidencia de los EU del General Comandante del Ejercito Americano en Nuevo León Zacary Taylor,que seria a la postre Presidente Numero 12 de los EU por sus méritos en las Batallas de Palo Alto,Resaca de Guerrero, Monterrey y la Angostura o Buenavista, al terminar los discursos se dirigieron de nuevo a Monterrey y en la casa del General Arista en el Obispado se continuo la celebración de este primer 4 de Julio fuera de los EU.

a continuación un pequeño fragmento de este discurso del General Cushing del regimiento de Massachusetts en el Bosque de Santo Domingo o Walnut Spring en San Nicolas de los Garza:
Vista de Monterrey desde el Obispado.

 "Esta reflexión adquiere la nueva fuerza de las circunstancias bajo que nosotros esta reunión del día - un ejército americano victorioso, aquí, en el corazón de la República mexicana, en la vista de los reductos capturados y Montañas de Monterrey,

Arbol del Bosque del Nogalar 1846 
en medio de los venerables arboles, y por el lado de estas aguas vivientes del Bosque de Santo Domingo que, ocupó por usted, general, y sus tropas victoriosas, ha adquirido un lugar en la historia como soportar en la vida como la poesía dio a la fuente de Vaucluse, o elocuencia al bosquecillo de Academus. "Sí, millones de hombres habrán congregado hoy dentro de los límites anchos de los Estados Unidos, para honrar a las tradiciones de la Revolución, ponderar en la belleza excelente de la Constitución Federal, felicitar entre si en la condición feliz de nuestro país, y para parecer adelante con el ojo inquisitivo en el futuro sublime de la República americana. Ellos llamarán para molestar guerra de independencia que vindicó nuestros derechos nacionales en la tierra primero a los nombres de los campos heridos de eso - de esa guerra del segundo de independencia que vindicó nuestros derechos nacionales en el mar, y de los héroes que ilustraron cada uno pero mientras la Colina del Arcón, y Saratoga, y Yorktown, y de Nuevo Orleans no se olvidará. Palo Alto, Resaca del la Palma, Monterey, Buenavista, Vera Cruz, y Cerro Gordo quieren todavía más.

 Fourth of July at


Monterey 1847 Tuesday, August 3 ,1847
The celebration is over, and without any accident, a rare thing for a Fourth of July, and everything went off pleasantly and agreeably to all concerned. The morning of the 5th was cloudy and portended rain, but the bright sun soon dispelled the heavy mist that clung to the mountain’s side, and ere noon the heavens were as clear and bright as a lovely woman’s smile. Early in the forenoon the American ensign was displayed from the Governor’s quarters and the Spanish flag from the residence of the Spanish consul nearly opposite. The live companies of Massachusetts volunteers were assembled, all but the guard, with the colors of the regiment presented them by the Governor of their State, and a little after 9 o’clock they formed and marched out towards Camp Taylor. An American flag borne by a citizen was carried near the regimental colors. Col. Wright and the members of the regimental staff, and others, preceded the regiment, and on the road received the marching salute. At Camp Taylor all was ready; under the wide-spread awning in front of Gen. Taylor’s tent were the brave old hero and the members of his staff and the officers attached to the forces stationed at camp. On the right of the awning the soldiers of Maj. Bragg’s Light Artillery were drawn up in line, on the left the 2d Dragoons, and in front the Massachusetts regiment. As soon as the latter had formed into line, Gen. Cushing made his appearance, and Gen. Taylor and his officers all rose. Gen. Cushing then proceeded to address him as follows: “General- The veteran officers and soldiers whom you have so many times led on to victory and to tame- those yet untired in the field, who ardently long for the day when your voice shall bid them also tread triumphantly in the same noble path of honor and of duty- and others your fellow citizens present, who, though not called to fight the battles of their country, are not the less animated with the same devoted love towards her which we feel- have desired on this anniversary of our separate existence as a sovereign people, to present their respectful salutations to you, as the official representative here of the power and authority of the United States. “We come to rejoice with you on this day of glorious memories; in the prosperity and greatness of our country, and to rekindle in our hearts the sacred fire of patriotism by remembering together the virtues and the sacrifices of our wise and brave forefathers, who have transmitted to us the splendid heritage of the land hallowed by their blood, of the institutions they founded, of their own immortal names. “It is, indeed, a day never forgotten by an American; for whether in the home of our affections and interests, surrounded by all that is dearest to the human heart, or on the broad expanse of the fathomless ocean, or wandering over some far distant land, on this anniversary, wherever we may be, our thoughts are turned spontaneously to the same point, as truly as the needle to the pole, as devoutly as the Muslem to his holy Mecca. “And well it is for us that it is so, since no warmth of gratitude is intense enough to be commensurate with the debt of thankfulness we owe to our patriot sires, no language of eloquence is powerful enough to express adequately the emotions of pride which our country’s career awakens- no homage of the soul is profound enough render due adoration to that gracious Providence which has continued to guide and to guard the destinies of the Union. Meanwhile let us be just to the memory of our fathers, and just to ourselves in the measure of regard which we bestow on this day. “Men who have but superficially studied the history of the United States are accustomed to speak of this day as the anniversary of our emancipation from bondage, and vague ideas of that vaguest of all things, called liberty are attached to the very name of our national independence. But the people of the United States were never in a state of bondage. The war of the revolution was not a war for liberty. On the contrary, it was but a struggle in arms to determine whether the two great subdivisions of the British race, one inhabiting Europe, and the other inhabiting America, and both equally free, should continue to constitute a single empire, or whether they should be reconstituted separately into two independent empires. The God of Battles decided that we, the American Colonies, were as competent for independent self-government as the mother country; and England with that practical good sense which distinguished her from other nations, manfully acquiesced in the decision which split her power asunder, and gave to us separate dominion in America. “And the mysterious order of Providence seems to have predestined the American to surpass the European subdivision of the original empire, for, of that high-minded, bold-hearted and strong-handed British race, which, wheresoever it appears, appears but to command, the more numerous part will ere long be found in America; and the British Isles have already reached that fatal term in the history of nations when their native land can no longer feed its sons; while the people of the United States are still expanding with a rapidity and strength of possession which defies calculation, over the rich virgin soils of the New World. “This reflection acquires new force from the circumstances under which we this day meet- a conquering American army, here, in the heart of the Mexican Republic, in sight of the captured redoubts and heights of Monterey, amid the venerable trees, and by the side of these living waters of the wood of San Domingo, which, occupied by you, general, and your victorious troops, has acquired a place in history as enduring as poetry ever gave to the fountain of Vaucluse, or eloquence to the grove of Academus. “Yes, millions of men will have assembled today within the broad limits of the United States, to do honor to the traditions of the Revolution, to ponder on the excellent beauty of the Federal Constitution, to congratulate one another on the happy condition of our country, and to look forward with inquisitive eye into the sublime future of the American Republic. They will call to mind the names of the stricken fields of that first war of independence, which vindicated our national rights on the land- of that second war of independence which vindicated our national rights on the sea, and of the heroes who illustrated each but while Bunker Hill, and Saratoga, and Yorktown, and New Orleans will not be forgotten. Palo Alto, Resaca de la Palma, Monterey, Buena Vista, Vera Cruz, and Cerro Gordo will yet more.

Ahora a 170 años de estos eventos los dos paises luchan por mantener sus relaciones de manera cordial y sincera ojala que Mexico y EU vecinos geograficamente recuerden estos acontecimientos que dieron lecciones de vida.
esta Visita de los Examinadores médicos del ejercito de Estados Unidos que analizaran posibles excombatientes de EU en la Batalla de Monterrey de 1846 y que ocasiono que se perdiera mas de la mitad de su Territorio enter ellos California, Texas, Nuevo México, parte de Kansas, Colorado,Arizona, parte de Utah, donde mas de 70,000 mexicanos se quedaron ahi para protejer sus propiedades,
ahora a 168 años ocurren a diario actos Racistas como en Murrieta California, donde sus habitantes antiinmigrantes, no permitieron  en 2 Julio del 2014,que niños y Mujeres de Mexico y Centroamerica, pasaran por sus calles,ojala que no Olviden que esa parte era de Mexico.
