Situated at the main entrance to the Bosque de Chapultepec , this monument was designed as a semicircle of six columns, each representing the brave young cadets who died during the invasion of U.S. troops in 1847. The youthful cadets were stationed at the Castillo de Chapultepec , which served at that time as the national military academy and died in one of the most tragic and emotional moments in Mexican history.
