MONTERREY, Mexico - Archeologists have uncovered the remains of US soldiers probably killed in an 1846 Mexican-American War battle, some with bullet wounds and with many of their bones intact.

Found at a construction site and encrusted in the desert soil in Monterrey near the Texan border, the 10 sets of skeletal remains were discovered with buttons from uniforms, Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology said.
