Summary
"Trailing Clouds of Glory is a narrative of Zachary Taylor's Mexican War campaign, from the formation of his army in 1844 to his last battle at Buena Vista in 1847, with emphasis on the 163 men in his "Army of Occupation" who became Confederate or Union generals during the Civil War." "Felice Flanery Lewis clarifies what being a Mexican War veteran meant for these men, how they interacted with one another, how they performed their various duties, and how they reacted under fire. Referring to developments in Washington, DC, and other theaters of the war, this book provides a comprehensive picture of the early years of the conflict based on army records and the letters and diaries of the participants."--BOOK JACKET
