Synopsis:

Samuel Chamberlain's My Confession is a classic, ribald tale of nineteenth-century life. Perhaps the best written account of a soldier's adventures and misadventures in the Mexican War and its aftermath, this unexpurgated edition is now available for the first time, complete with over 150 of Chamberlain's wonderful textual illustrations reproduced in full color. If you enjoyed the Chamberlain paintings assembled in Sam Chamberlain's Mexican War:The San Jacinto Museum of History Paintings, you will be fascinated by the tale in My Confession that goes with it and beyond it into Chamberlain's adventures with the scalp-hunting Glanton Gang (the story that Cormac McCarthy used as the basis for his celebrated novel Blood Meridian).

My Confession is the story of Samuel Chamberlain, a Boston boy who hoped to be a theological student but could not control his amorous and pugilistic inclinations and so left for the West. According to his "Confession," he seduced countless women in the U.S. and Mexico, never missed a fandango, fought gallantly against Mexican guerrillas, and rode with the First Dragoons into the Battle of Buena Vista. His remarkable story is pure melodrama, but Goetzmann has proven by his painstaking research that much of it is true.

The editor's annotations are a valuable contribution to an account that virtually every historian of the Mexican War has used.

About the Author: Samuel Chamberlain, lived in Marblehead, Massachusetts. He was the author of over sixty books on New England, Virginia, England, France and Italy. His New England Calendars of Engagements sold in the millions.

William H. Goetzmann is a Pulitzer Prize winning historian who has authored and edited more than a dozen volumes. Before his retirement he was the Jack S. Blanton Chair in American Studies and History at the University of Texas, Austin.

Book Description Texas State Historical Association, 1996, Austin, TX, 1996. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: very good +. Near fine hardcover in a very good plus dust jacket with minor rubbing. One short crack to the front hinge due to the weight of this book. I expected to find a Comanche war club when I opened it. This book was the property of the Tempe public library but was never entered into circulation. The cloth covers have no library marks and neither does the dust jacket.There are two library stamps on the text block and a date on the front free end paper and a discard stamp on the title page and one other Tempe public library below that. But that's it. A sharp and almost new looking copy that will require two strong arms to read it. 382 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 5761
