The Mexican War and its Warriors

£60.00

Product description

"The Mexican War and its Warriors; comprising a complete history of all the operations of the American armies in Mexico; with biographical sketches and anecdotes of the most distinguished officers in the regular army and volunteer force."

"The present contest between the United States and Mexico has called forth the military energies of this country, and has led to displays of valour and military science which have astonished the whole civilized world. In a succession of battles, sieges, marches and skirmishes, lasting through a period of nineteen months, the arms of the United States have been uniformly triumphant. Wherever our armies have met the enemy they have conquered.

Of such a contest the history cannot but prove interesting to the whole body of the American people. The scattered details which have been furnished by the public journals, although they have served to ally anxiety for the moment, are quite insufficient to satisfy the lively curiosity which such events are well calculated to awaken. 'A round unvarnished tale' of the whole progress of the war is necessary to form a portion of the historical library of every family; and it is due to the heroic officers and men who have served in this war, that their claims to the gratitude of their country should be distinctly recorded and preserved in a permanent form.

It is with these views that the following history, and the biographical sketches which accompany it, have been written. The author's aim has been to do justice to all, and he hopes that this intention will atone for any imperfections to which this, in common with every work of its class is necessarily liable."

Book pages are in good condition for its age but with foxing throughout. There are full page black and white plates throughout and smaller illustrations above each chapter heading. There is a hand coloured frontispiece. The hardback cover is dirty with wear at the corners and the top and bottom of the spine. The spine is illustrated in gold.
