The Ones in Saint Patrick’s Batallion (Los del San Patricio)

The story of the men whose morality made them move to the opponent side.

The real story of John Riley and his colleagues, the irishmen who fought in 1846 within the side of the Americans during the Mexican-American War.

They, who had escaped from hunger and the oppression in Ireland, could not remain submissive in view of the massacre the Americans were committing against the Mexican army.

Consequently, the Irishmen decided to fight against the Americans from the Mexican side, creating the Saint Patrick’s Battalion.

The Americans, on their behalf, tried Ridley and his men for high treason. They were condemned and marked with a “D” on their cheek for being deserters.
