The Battle of Veracruz was a 20-day siege of the key Mexican beachhead seaport of Veracruz, during the Mexican-American War. Lasting from March 9–29, 1847, it began with the first large-scale amphibious assault conducted by United States military forces, and ended with the surrender and occupation of the city. U.S. forces then marched inland to Mexico City. General Quitman was sent to join Winfield Scott’s expedition after the Battle of Monterrey and led the 2nd Brigade in the Volunteer Division at the Siege of Veracruz.
