9781330577516: The Military Heroes of the War With Mexico: With a Narrative of the War (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Military Heroes of the War With Mexico: With a Narrative of the War

In the following pages, the author has deviated in measure from the plan heretofore pursued. The descriptions of the battles, instead of being reserved for the appropriate biographies, are inserted in the history; while the history itself is confined almost entirely to the military transactions of the war. It must be reserved for another age to write an impartial story of this contest, and to assign to each hero his due place!

History is of necessity imitative; and hence the author has drawn largely from the journals, &c., which have been written on the spot. In no instance, however, that he is aware of, has the language of his authorities been used, or any improper liberty been taken with them.
