|Description:||vii, 327 pages : illustrations, maps ; 29 cm|
|Contents:||"For the first time, a scholarly, detailed and comprehensive study of the United States Regular Army in the dark decade preceeding the explosion of the Civil War is presented here. The tiny armed force of the nation, spread from far outposts on the American western frontier to the bustling streets of Washington, D.C., is examined here with a true appreciation for their sacrifice. From beginning to end it will be found that each action and event would have lasting, often critical, effects on the great conflict ahead" --
