Rough Riders : Theodore Roosevelt, his cowboy regiment, and the immortal charge up San Juan Hill by Mark Lee Gardner( Book )
2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 771 libraries worldwide
Two months after the sinking of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor in February 1898, Congress authorized President McKinley to recruit a volunteer army to drive the Spaniards from Cuba. From this army emerged the legendary "Rough Riders," a mounted regiment drawn from America's western territories and led by the indomitable Theodore Roosevelt. Its ranks included not only cowboys and other westerners, but several Ivy Leaguers and clubmen, many of them friends of "TR." Roosevelt and his men quickly came to symbolize American ruggedness, daring, and individualism. He led them to victory in the famed Battle at San Juan Hill, which made TR a national hero and cemented the Rough Riders' place in history. Now, Mark Lee Gardner synthesizes previously unknown primary accounts as well as period newspaper articles, letters, and diaries from public and private archives in Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Boston, and Washington, DC, to produce this authoritative chronicle. He breathes fresh life into the Rough Riders and pays tribute to their daring feats and indomitable leader. Gardner also explores lesser-known aspects of the story, including their relationship with the African-American "Buffalo Soldiers," with whom they fought side by side at San Juan Hill

When the Mexican-American War broke out in spring 1846, Frank S. Edwards joined a volunteer artillery company in St. Louis, Missouri. Attached to the Army of the West, Edward's company marched over the Santa Fe Trail to help capture and occupy New Mexico. The young soldier then joined Colonel Alexander Doniphan's Missouri volunteers. who defeated superior Mexican forces at the Battles of Bracito near El Paso and of Sacramento farther south in Chihuahua. After a brief stay in American-occupied Saltillo, Doniphan's volunteers returned to the Rio Grande and thence to New Orleans. The march of these Missouri volunteers was the most epic of any American troops during the Mexican-American War.

A Campaign in New Mexico is an excellent source for nineteenth-century frontier soldiering and life on Mexico's far northern frontier
