Texas and the Mexican War discusses the pivotal role Texas played in the Mexican War. From battles fought on Texas soil, to the contributions—for better or worse—of Texas troops throughout the war.

Since the opening of hostilities in 1846, the Mexican War has remained controversial. Author Charles M. Robinson III draws on U.S. and Mexican sources to discuss conditions in both countries that he believes made the war inevitable. He reveals the motivations, egos, and quarrels between generals and politicians in the U.S. and Mexico. He also looks at how the common soldier saw the war.

Contemporary photographs, sketches, and drawings fill the pages.

For those wanting to visit important sites from the war around the South, take a look at the “Then and Now” sidebars.
