    On May 8, 1846 troops of the United States and Mexico clashed on the prairie of Palo Alto in the first battle of a two-year war.

    Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park preserves the scene of this clash between nations and informs visitors about its national and international importance. As the only unit of the National Park Service with a primary focus on the US-Mexican War, Palo Alto Battlefield also interprets the entire conflict--including the details of its origins and the broad range of consequences.
