CON MI GENTE: Historic Valley Landmark Relocated
NEAR BROWNSVILLE – It took a number of years and the combined efforts of many, but now a Rio Grande Valley historic monument has a new home.
It’s the Resaca de la Palma Battlefield just outside Brownsville, the second battle site of the Mexican-American War, fought in 1846.
In 1917, a total of four giant cannons were used to mark four different battle sites.
A ceremony was held to highlight the moving of the restored cannon, complete with reenactors.
