Excerpt from Three Great Battles
The following articles were published soon after the events described in them, and are reprinted now to supply an occasional demand among the writer's friends.
The account of the Battle of Buena Vista was prepared from the detailed re... ports of the different commanders, with the aid of Carleton's Book, and verbal descriptions from parties present in the fight. General Taylor expressed himself satisfied with its accuracy; and it obtained the very undeserved credit, at the time, of being the production of an eye witness.
Many years after the account of the Battle of Buena Vista was written, the writer was struck, as he read Thiers' Consulate and Empire, with the extraordinary similarity that existed between the Battle of Buena Vista and the Battle of Marengo, even in the fact that while Marengo made Buonaparte' Emperor, Buena Vista made Taylor President.
