One thing they discussed was when they fought side by side during the Mexican War in 1847 at the battles of Churubusco and Veracruz.
The interesting thing was that battle was mentioned in the national papers in 1847 and that is about the time local leaders were trying to choose a name for the new Post Office. A local teacher suggested the name Churubusco after the battle won by the American troops during the Mexican War.
I just thought being mentioned in this book was quite interesting and especially during such an important time in our Nation’s history ending the Civil War and again Uniting the States under one flag. Grant, Lee and many other future Civil War Generals fought side by side during that war.
