Santa Anna was the greatest military
leader the Mexicans have ever known.
Santa Anna with 25,000 veterans went
to the battle of Buena Vista with the
avowed purpose of exterminating the
entire army of the United States, and
there was no doubt in the mind of
Santa Anna that this great feat could
be accomplished with comparative
ease. General Taylor, with his 6,000
men, prepared for the unequal contest,
and not only defended himself success
fully, but won a substantial victory
from bis aggressive antagonists and
drove them from, the battlefield of
Buena Vista. -
Borne time after the battle was fought
and the Mexican war concluded Gen
eral Taylor was criticised for having
made no preparations for the retreat
of his army In the event of defeat
General Taylor promptly replied: "I
made every preparation necessary for
the battle of Buena Vista. I wrote my
will, and so did nearly every man In
my army. If we had not won that
battle, we would have needed no lines
of retreat I,t was, from our stand
point, victory or annihilation. The only
preparation necessary for the contin
gency of defeat at Buena Vista was
that we should write our wills.''
