Subject: RE: ?Why Mexicans called them 'Gringos'?
I have posted previously that there seems to be no credible evidence of the song being known to American soldiers in the Mexican War.
Gargoyle's post that Ford's book was a "REAL primary printed source" could be interpreted to mean that some evidence was there. That was what I was trying to elicit from Gargoyle.
