7 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1761 Ilarione da Bergamo, a Capuchin friar, journeyed to Mexico to gather alms for foreign missions. After harrowing voyages across the Mediterranean and Atlantic, he reached Mexico City in 1763. Ilarione's account reveals the squalor, crime, and other perils in the viceregal capital, and gives details about daily life: food, public hygiene, sexual morality, medical practices, and popular diversions. His observations about religious life are particularly valuable. Based on a four year residence in the silver mining town of Real del Monte, fifty miles north of the capital, Ilarione describes mining and refining techniques and recounts a bitter and bloody miners' strike. Ilarione also traveled across bandit-infested wilderness to Guadalajara."--Jacket

An immigrant soldier in the Mexican War by Frederick Zeh( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frederick Zeh, a young German immigrant, had hardly arrived in the United States when he was caught up in the war fever that swept his new homeland. He joined the Mountain Howitzer and Rocket Company of the U.S. Army. His impressions of the siege of Veracruz, the long march to Mexico City, the bloody battles that occurred along the route, and the occupation of the capital provide a vivid and unusual account of the Mexican War from an enlisted man's point of view. Although Zeh held the lowly rank of "laborer" in the army, he was well-educated and an astute observer, and his story is both lively and well-written. Besides the horror of battles, he tells about relations between officers and enlisted men, military punishment, and the day-to-day life of the soldiers. Numerous anecdotes and personal stories enliven his narrative. He is unusually candid about abuses that occurred in the American army and toward Mexican civilians. His is also the first book-length account written by a German-American participant - a significant contribution, given that nearly half the regular army was made up of immigrant recruits
