Narrative of the Texan Santa Fé expedition : comprising a description of a tour through Texas and across the great southwestern prairies the Camanche and Caygüa hunting-grounds : with an account of the sufferings from want of food, losses from hostile Indians, and final capture of the Texans, and their march, as prisoners, to the city of Mexico by Geo. Wilkins Kendall( Book )

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

Narrative of the Texan Santa Fé expedition : comprising a description of a tour through Texas, and across the great southwestern prairies, the Camanche and Caygüa hunting-grounds, with an account of the sufferings from want of food, losses from hostile Indians, and final capture of the Texans and their march, as prisoners, to the city of Mexico : with illustrations and maps by Geo.

George Wilkins Kendall’s story gains even more fire in the second half of his narrative. The story begins in the desert north of El Paso, as the prisoners are being marched to their destination. The brutal Captain Salezar delivers the Texans into other hands in El Paso, and the long march to Mexico City begins. The biggest difference between the first and second volumes of the narrative is that the captives are traveling through territory that was occupied by the Spanish for as long as 320 years. As the column moves south through Chihuahua, Durango, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosí, and beyond—and as Kendall enjoys the small liberties of parole granted by kindly officers—the story becomes almost a travelogue. Kendall introduces the reader to Mexican society in the mid-18th century, from tiny pueblo to bustling city. Always there is suffering. Always there is suspense. Kendall is bumped from prison to prison, from foul to fouler. Yet even with chains around his ankles, Kendall keeps a bright spirit and a wry outlook. There is a reason why this book has remained a classic piece of Texana for more than 150 years—it is an epic adventure

Dispatches from the Mexican War by Geo. Wilkins Kendall( Book )

"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
