Photograph of a drawing (painting?) by W. Francis called "The Charge of the Caballeros" depicting the Battle of San Pascual, [s.d.]. The drawing shows a mass of mounted soldiers converging in a confused combat, the Californios (Francis' "Caballeros") identified by their long lances and the Americans by their uniforms and sabers. In the foreground a horse that has lost its American rider is galloping at the front of the charge.; In the battle, which occurred December 6, 1846 near San Diego during the Mexican War, General Stephen Kearny led a group of about 100 cavalrymen in an ill-advised attack on a group of Californio lancers; the resulting engagement led to the deaths of around 20 US cavalrymen, along with several wounded, as well as minimal casualties and a victory for the Californios.
