Regarding General Pedro María Anaya. General Pedro María Anaya was a member of the Mexican military, born in Huichapan, Hidalgo. He led the Mexican forces against the United States of America at the Battle of Churubusco on August 20, 1847, just outside of Mexico City. The Mexican forces were outnumbered by 2 to 1 and fought to the last of their ammunition. General Anaya, when asked during the surrender to General Twiggs to turn over any left over ammunition, famously replied, "¡Si hubiera parque, no estaría usted aquí!" (If I had any ammunition, you wouldn't be here!).
