  I've been thinking about this recently so if I start rambling, just ignore it and skip on down.

  Some of my favorite movies involve American cowboys/gunmen/criminals going into Mexico for different adventures, along the lines of Mag7, The Wild Bunch, and The Professionals.  However, I've noticed that a lot of these movies take place at or toward the end of the Civil War.

  In Major Dundee, a troop of 50 or 60 men rides into Mexico in pursuit of a band of 47 renegade Apaches.  They also tangle with French lancers.

  In Vera Cruz, a bunch of American adventurers escort a gold shipment, battling French and Mexican soldiers.

  In The Undefeated, Union vets are driving a herd of 3,000 horses to Mexico City.  A wagon train of ex-Confederates is riding through Mexico at the same time.

  Not that this is any brilliant revelation, but a lot seems to be going on in April 1865 in northern Mexico.  You'd think at some point, all these storylines would interact.  And I know, they're just movies, but come on, isn't that kind of cool?  What other movies am I missing?

Well Two Mules for Sister Sara is one you missed but  the Wild Bunch and The Professionals take place about 40 years after the Civil War during the Mexican Revolution, 100 Rifles sort of fits in there too.
