Guns Along the Rio Grande: Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palma: The U.S. Army Campaigns of the Mexican War
John S. Brown (in); Stephen A. Carney (au)
The Mexican War (1846-1848) was the U.S. Army’s first experience waging an extended conflict in a foreign land. This brief war, often overlooked because it occurred so close to the American Civil War, was instrumental in shaping the geographical boundaries of the U.S. This newly acquired land also became a battleground over slavery. In addition, the Mexican War was a proving ground for a generation of U.S. Army leaders, who as junior officers in Mexico, learned the trade of war & later applied those lessons to the Civil War. This document, in the series “The U.S. Army Campaigns of the Mexican War”, provides a general discussion of the War & focuses on the Battle of Palo Alto, which began on 8 May 1846.
