During the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848, Francisca Alvarez saved the lives of many American soldiers captured by Santa Ana's forces. Using primary source images to explore Alvarez's life, this moving account explains how--under standing orders from General Santa Ana--all captured American soldiers were to be shot. Francisca Alvarez, known as The Angel of Goliad, intervened and secured pardons for a number of men before they were executed.
