Anchorage, Alaska
Biography:

Forty years ago when visiting Mexico I explored the city. I visited the Convent which is now a museum dedicated to the ‘Saint Patrick’s’ Battalion. I searched for the graves of the executed Irishmen. The director informed me that they no longer existed. A parking lot stood where they lay. It seemed to me that this story needed to be told and this is my fictionalized account of those brave men who gave all for Mexico.
