Summary
"Pioneering war correspondent George Wilkins Kendall (1809-67) wrote vividly from Mexico about America's first foreign war, which, after the victories of Zachary Taylor and Winfield Scott, enlarged our borders to include California, Texas, and New Mexico in the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. Noted military historian Lawrence Delbert Cress has collected and annotated Kendall's more than two hundred dispatches for the first time in this single volume." "These newspaper dispatches are indispensable for an understanding of the Mexican War, which trained the generals who later served, on both sides, in the Civil War."--BOOK JACKET
