The Action of Atlixco, also known as the "Atlixco Affair", on October 19, 1847, was a U.S. victory late in the Mexican-American War by an American force under General Joseph Lane that defeated the Light Corps of the Mexican Army under General Joaquín Rea and captured their base at Atlixco a week after Lane had driven Rea from his lines and relieved the Siege of Puebla.
