Description
After having fought valiantly on the side of Gen. Antonio López de Santa Anna in several battles of the U.S.-Mexican War, members of St. Patrick's Battalion—a group of Mexican sympathizers—met disaster in Churubusco (choo-roo-BOOS-coh) in 1847. American forces captured and hanged most of the battalion of 260 Irish immigrants who had deserted the U.S. Army to fight for Mexico. Churubusco is much more tranquil today; major Mexican film studios are located in this suburb just east of Coyoacán.
