Battle of Valverde - February 21st 1862

A little history

The Battle of Valverde, also known as the Battle of Valverde Ford, was fought from February 20th to 21st, 1862, near the town of ValVerde at a ford of the Rio Grande.
The first stop in the New Mexico campaign launched by Brigadier General Sibley was the stronghold of Fort Craig along the Rio Grande, defended by Colonel Canby with just under 4,000 men under his command.
Feeling the place far too solid for a direct attack, Sibley, commanding around 2500 men, decided to bypass the obstacle in order to cut the fort's communications and supply lines with Santa Fe.
On the morning of February 21st, 1862, the riders of the 2nd Texas Mounted Rifles, commanded by Major Pyron, took possession of the fords to the north of the fort.
Canby sensing this maneuver had in the meantime detached a mixed column, commanded by Colonel Roberts. The 3rd US riders also arrived in the early morning hours of February 21st.
Throughout the day, each of the camps intervened more and more troops to maintain possession of the fords.
The victorious charge of the 5th Texas Mounted Rifles definitively repulsed the Yankees who retreated towards Fort Craig.
