U.S. forces under the command of General John J. Pershing responded with an invasion of northern Mexico. Author Patrick discusses this attack on American territory, Pershing's “Punitive Expedition,” and the service of the Missouri National Guard's Second Infantry Regiment on the Mexican border from 1916-1917.
