The Eutaw Rangers

 

The EUTAW RANGERS in the WAR with MEXICO
The Mexican War Journal & Letters of Capt. Sydenham Moore
and the Mexican War Journal of Pvt. Stephen F. Nunnalee
Co. D, First Regiment of Alabama Volunteers

Transcribed, Edited, and Annotated by Steven R. Butler,
Editor, MEXICAN WAR Journal.

 

The "Eutaw Rangers," a volunteer company raised in Greene County, Alabama in May 1846, spent twelve months in service during the Mexican War, under the command of both Zachary Taylor and Winfield Scott. Both the captain of the company and an enlisted man kept a daily journal of their experiences. Arriving at Brazos Santiago on July 4, 1846, the company first camped on Brazos Island. They were afterward stationed at Camp Belknap, Camargo, Tampico, Vera Cruz, and Jalapa. Although they did not go forward with Taylor to Monterey, the company participated in the March 9, 1847 landing at Vera Cruz and the subsequent siege. After Vera Cruz capitulated, the Eutaw Rangers were among the troops who went on the abortive Alvardo Expedition under General Quitman. This 146-page comb-bound, soft-cover book, also includes 18 letters Capt. Moore wrote home to his wife. Together, these documents, composed by two highly-literate, observant individuals make up the never-before published story of the wartime experiences of these patriotic Alabamians. Fully annoted and indexed.

Sketches by a Skirmisher

 

SKETCHES BY A SKIRMISHER
The Mexican War Writings of Capt. Mayne Reid
Co. B, Second Regiment of New York Volunteers

Edited and with an Introduction by Steven R. Butler,
Editor, MEXICAN WAR Journal.

 

The writing career of Mayne Reid, one of the nineteenth century's most prolific author of adventure novels, was sparked by his service in the Mexican War. Serving as an officer with the 2nd New York Volunteers, the highly-eloquent Reid participated the Battle of Chapultepec, where he was severely wounded. The writings in this book include his correspondence to a New York newspaper describing the battles and events of Scott's campaign, short stories and poems inspired by his adventures in Mexico (including a short-lived engagement to a Mexican señorita), and an extract from his Memoirs that also tells the story of the Central Mexico campaign. Indexed.
