At long last my eyes once more could gaze upon rich green grass and trees covered with foliage. Our section stood at the foot of a hill covered with lovely trees. We were unable to determine how close we were to enemy fortifications. We were not allowed to climb the hills and could not leave the guns under any circumstances. Our commanding officer and a few men from the engineering corps went above to reconnoiter. The enemy must have noticed them, for suddenly bombs began flying and bursting above our heads, so that a continual hissing and roaring in bass and treble filled our ears, all depending on the size of the fragments flying about.
The first was the walled and fortified city of Veracruz. As Zeh details in his memoirs, the invaders soon advanced toward the city and began to bombard it, while receiving enemy shells in their camp. The siege and shelling lasted more than two weeks, during which at least eighty Mexican soldiers and one hundred civilians were killed; American losses were thirteen dead and fifty-five wounded. Finally, at the end of March, the besieged garrison of thirty-three hundred soldiers, plus a thousand men stationed at the off-shore fortress of San Juan de Ulúa, surrendered.
After a few days, the entire battery marched off around evening. Once more the night was pitch black, and our halting place was an open field, near which were located fortifications being excavated for a mortar battery. The enemy was very vigilant, and many a shot came whizzing past our ears. As if by magic, a blinding light coming from the fortress suddenly illuminated the entire area. Our finely polished howitzers glistened like gold. The Mexicans immediately discovered us. Bugle calls resonated from the besieged city, and a raging stream of fire showered down upon us from the most varied array of guns.
