Welcome to Resaca de la Palma Battlefield
Today the Resaca de la Palma Battlefield lies in the center of Brownsville, Texas, a community with many descendants of these Mexican-Americans. Much of the area of dense brush has been replaced by streets, homes, and businesses, but a 34 acre portion of this important battlefield remains. In August 2011, Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park acquired this property as a second unit of the park. The park currently opens the site for special events, like the annual Memorial Illumination, a ceremonial lighting of 8,000 candles to honor each of the U.S. and Mexican soldiers who fought in the Palo Alto/Resaca battles. In time, the public will have even greater access to trails, interpretative media, and programs on the site.
