There was a Lt. Sullivan of the Saint Patrick's Battalion (San Patricios) who became a colonel in the Mexican army
during the Mexican American war 1846.
"To Mexicans, the San Patricios were great heroes who defected because they could not stand to see the Americans
bullying a smaller, weaker Catholic nation. They fought not out of fear but out of a sense of righteousness and justice.
Every year, St. Patrick's Day is celebrated in Mexico, particularly in the places where the soldiers were hanged. They
have received many honors from the Mexican government, including streets named after them, plaques, postage
stamps issued in their honor, etc."
