Narrative of the Texan Santa Fé expedition by Geo. Wilkins Kendall( Book )

22 editions published between 1844 and 2012 in English and German and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Texan Santa Fe expedition was conceived by Mirabeau B. Lamar in an attempt to open a trade route which would lure away some of the traffic hitherto utilizing the Santa Fe trade, and also to extend his greetings to residents of New Mexico, whom he wished to participate in Texas government as residents of territory claimed by Texas in an act of 1836. Due to poor navigation, faulty planning and harassment by Indians, the expedition lost most of its momentum. Upon their arrival in New Mexico, the entire force was taken captive under orders of Gov. Manuel Armijo. The prisoners were forcibly marched to Mexico City, and the affair brought relations between Texas, the United States and Mexico to a boiling point. Those who survived the march and imprisonment were released in April 1842, six and a half months after their capture. Kendall, editor of the New Orleans Picayune, accompanied the expedition as an observer

"Pioneering war correspondent George Wilkins Kendall (1809-67) wrote vividly from Mexico about America's first foreign war, which, after the victories of Zachary Taylor and Winfield Scott, enlarged our borders to include California, Texas, and New Mexico in the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. Noted military historian Lawrence Delbert Cress has collected and annotated Kendall's more than two hundred dispatches for the first time in this single volume." "These newspaper dispatches are indispensable for an understanding of the Mexican War, which trained the generals who later served, on both sides, in the Civil War."--Jacket
