This is a Mexican short film with reenactors about the fight of the last stand of the young Army cadets at the battle of Chapultepec in 1847 between Mexico and USA.

The film is not good (except when they show the action more near) in quality, but took my atention the amount of "dead" soldiers they show.

What do you think about the uniforms?

Thanks for the link to the video. That was interesting especially as each cadet was named.

Armand--you are correct. That was not very good! The cadet unifrom seems to be accurate (as far as I can remember from previous reading on the subject).

At least, the re-enactors show a great enthusiasm!
Take in account that the "dead" had to lyied in the ground for more than an hour.
