Battle Of Embudo Pass

The Battle of Embudo Pass was part of the Taos Revolt, a popular insurrection against the United States. It took place on January 29, 1847, during the Mexican-American War, in what now is New Mexico. It was a response to the United States occupying this particular area in Mexico.

Following the Battle of CaƱada, the locals, both Native and Mexican retreated to Embudo, near present-day Dixon, New Mexico, where they made another stand in the narrow canyon there.

Last insurgent stand before the Siege of Pueblo de Taos.
