Preston in Southern Victory Edit
In early 1943, while Spartacus was preparing a second raid on Plains, Georgia, two companies of Mexican troops took up garrison duty in the town. Spartacus arranged for a letter outlining his (false) plans to fall into their hands. The Mexicans began marching west toward Preston and came to field fortifications across the road. As they grouped to attack the defenders, they came under deadly enfilade fire from a machine gun concealed on their flank. After suffering heavy casualties, the Mexicans were routed.
