From Rep. Joe Baca (D-CA) writing at the Huffington Post:
I guess nobody told General Sherman. And while I'll concede a rather weak grasp of Mexican military history, I'm pretty sure the French sacked the Mexican capital one year after that first attack--as in conquered the country and installed an emperor a month before the Battle of Gettysburg. Exit earmark proposal: $100,000 for remedial history courses for the esteemed and honorable members of the United States House of Representatives.
