James Henry Carleton letter : Buena Vista, Mexico, to George Evans, Maine by James Henry Carleton( )

1 edition published in 1847 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Handwritten letter describing recent military engagements, and visits with top generals during the Mexican American War. He first describes his unit's march to Mazapil following some false information about a guerrilla attack. Then he speculates on Santa Anna's troop strength and fortifications, as there is "no news from Gen Scott. By the last advices he has not pushed on his main army beyond Puebla," and he has heard that "Santa Anna has fortified and prepared the capital for a vigorous defenses, having some 12,000 regulars and some 20,000 irregular troops, with a large number of cannon. No doubt his strength is greatly magnified." Despite the increase in Santa Anna's manpower, Carleton assterts that these troops "cannot all be properly armed, much less disciplined and skilled in the use of their weapons. Such a force on a lain should be destroyed by 8000 American regular troops...Gen Taylor could with 8000 regulars whip 40,000 such troops as Mexico can now bring in the field. His name is worth a third more than Gen. Scott's." Carleton writes that he recently dined with General Zachary Taylor, and describes Taylor's plans for a full offensive. He adds that " the utmost good feeling does not subsist between Gen. Scott and Gen. Taylor," as General Taylor has "never been satisfied with Gen. Scott's course in stripping him of his veteran troops and leaving him with only the volunteers who had never been under fire." Additionally Carleton describes his own efforts to write a history, published the following year, of the February 1847 Battle of Buena Vista. He praises General Taylor's performance at that battle and its demoralizing effect on Scott as it seals the conviction "that nothing but death can interpose to prevent Gen. Taylor from being President...As a man of strong practical sense, good judgment, stern integrity, and with an earnest singleness of purpose, the good of the whole country, he hardly has an equal."
