By his initiative, prompt and forceful action, and his utter disregard for his own personal danger under heavy fire, General Moseley succeeded in bringing about a cessation of the fire which was endangering American life in El Paso, Texas, and arranged for a conference of the Mexican commanders which resulted in the retirement of one of the belligerent groups, a cessation of fire, and the restoration of peace and quiet. By this action General Moseley was chiefly responsible for relieving a delicate international situation.
