9. Molino de Rey War Memorial in its original location
The monument's original 1856 location was near the Mexican position in the battle, northwest of the Molino de Rey seen to the left in this photo. The monument was moved due to road construction which left it isolated and difficult to visit. The current position of the monument is some meters south of the Molino del Rey, which paradoxically puts it closer to the American position in the battle.
