The American forces were driven upon a butte in the desert, on which there was no water and there surrounded by the Mexican forces Edward F. Beale and Kit Carson, both famous explorers of the West volunteered to get through the Mexican lines and get reinforcements from Stocktonís fleet at San Diego. They succeeded in crawling past three cordons of Mexican sentries in the night, and by hiding in ravines in the day and traveling by night they reached Stocktonís fleet after enduring great hardships.
