"... and you, martial group, beloved group,
bough of rose bays from the green Ireland,
sons of Saint Patrick!, who with blood
wished to baptize yourselves as mexicans;
soul of O'Conell, our holy cause
was worthy of you ..."
(Guillermo Prieto)

The Congress of the Union declared all civilian and military combatants of the mexican-american war as "Benémeritos de la Patria" (something like "Distinguished of the Country") in heroic grade. And to honour them, they all received the name of "Defensores de la Patria 1846-1848" (Defenders of the Country). That title was hanged in the Wall of Honour in the Congress building next to the name "Batallón de San Patricio" (Saint Patrick's Battalion) in letters made of gold, in honour to soldiers of the battalion.
