About this Item

16 pp. 8vo. A defense of Zachary TaylorÕs career in the Mexican War. Jefferson Davis (1808Ð89), Senator from Mississippi, considers it unjust for his colleagues in the Senate, notably the Senator from Texas, to criticize General Taylor for allegedly exceeding his authority in exercising Civil Power over a region of Mexico in dispute over the boundary of Texas and New Mexico in the uncertain time at the end of the Mexican War. Davis justifies the Battle of Monterey on the basis of an ineffectual Texas militia and a vacuum of authority. Damp stain at lower corner. ?Trimmed. Else, Very Good. Brown, Hay Metcalf. LCCN 10025134. Bookseller Inventory # 10679
