The research team takes to the air to look for the “canyon” chosen by the Republican army to later ambush the Royalist Army before the Battle of Medina.
Multiple accounts of the Battle of Medina relate the Republican army’s route to the battlefield differently or contradict each other on some material point.
The search team maps roads into San Antonio in 1813 and, with that, the line of Gen. Joaquín de Arredondo’s march on the morning of the Battle of Medina.
The post-action report of the Spanish Royalist commander gives us our first important clues for narrowing the Battle of Medina search area.
What can the three markers placed south of San Antonio in 1936, 2005, and 2013 tell us about where the Battle of Medina might have occurred?
Could modern technology help find the “Forgotten Battlefield” that has eluded searchers now for almost a century?
