Announcement to the army of General Zachary Taylor's victory at Buenavista. "General Santa Ana, on sustaining that overwhelming defeat, is known to have retreated upon San Luis de Potosi, and probably will not stop short of the Capital." Hopes that "all may participate in the joy that is now spreading itself throughout the breadth of our land." Thomas Williams (1815-1862) was a lieutenant upon signing this note, but later became a Brigadier General in the Union army.
