Batalla de Monterrey - 21 de septiembre de 1846

— Recorriendo tu Historia —

 Cementerio de la PurísimaLa antigua capilla de la Purísima contaba con un cementerio, cuyos muros sirvieron de resguardo para la defensa de la ciudad durante la Batalla. Sin embargo la retirada de las fuerzas mexicanas del Obispado forzó al abandono de esa posición, que fue ocupada el 23 de septiembre por la División del General Worth. Desde aquí un mortero bombardeó la ciudad durante la noche y la madrugada del día siguiente. Inicio del recorrido: Calles Washington y Héroes del 47English translation:The Purísima Cemetery The ancient Purísima Chapel had a cemetery whose walls served as a shelter for the defense of the city during the Battle of Monterrey.
