In this volume an attempt is made to sketch his life, and to throw valuable light upon his sterling character by publishing, for the first time, and from the original manuscripts, a remarkable series of letters which he wrote from the battle-fields of the Mexican war. The letters, which are among the most interesting ever written by an American president, will also illuminate the history of that struggle, explain the sensational quarrel with General Scott, and make clear many doubtful points in the presidential contest that followed, in which old Rough and Ready not only triumphed over his jealous and revengeful antagonist in the army but over some of the greatest, most adroit, and most popular of American statesmen, reaching the highest office within the gift of his fellow-citizens.The readers of this privately printed volume may be interested in a sketch of General Taylors family and of his descendants, particularly as nothing accurate and comprehensive has hitherto been printed - indeed, a sketch may be regarded as necessary to a correct understanding of the many interesting allusions in these Letters to the members of his family, to whom he was passionately devoted.This edition has been optimized for Kindle with a table of contents and all end notes.The original spelling has also been preserved in order to retain the original feel of the text.
