Captain Dan Henrie's Escape

The Mexican War And Its Heroes... including Captain Dan Henrie, who escaped from the Mexican Army after being captured.

...the major [John Pollard Gaines] requested Captain Henrie who is a famous rider of the Jack Hays school... .  The captain did so and riding up to Captain Clay carelessly remarked Clay I am going to make a burst.

An Act For the Relief of Dan Henrie for his efforts in the Mexican War.

Henrie was a Texas Ranger and part of the Mier expedition.  He was also a prisonmate of Gen. Wharton J. Green.
