    Mexican War: Official List of Officers Who Marched with the Army under the Command of Major General Winfield Scott, from Puebla upon the City of Mexico, the Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and Tenth of August, One Thousand Eight Hundred and Forty-Seven, and Who Were Engaged in the Battles of Mexico. Mexico: American Star Print, 1848. Oblong 8vo. (10.25" x 7.5"). [26]pp., in sewn beige wrappers.

    On page two, the "Errata" has been affixed listing "Names Accidentally Omitted". The first listed is "2d Lt. G.[eorge] G. [sic] McClellan, Corps of Engineers; Aug. 19 at Contreras; Aug. 20 at Contreras and Churubusco. . . ." Page three contains the "Battles of Mexico" map. Page five begins the list of officers who marched on August 7-10. In addition to that list are columns "specifying where each was employed upon the 19th and 20th of August, and the 8th, 12th, 13th, and 14th of September, 1847." A final column includes "REMARKS" about the officers. For example, the remarks for Lt. P. G. T. Beauregard report that he was "Wounded at Belen Gate on the 13th Sept." Wrappers splitting at spine ends. A few shallow creases to wrappers and to some pages. Minor staining and dampstaining to wrappers; back wrapper has several tears along the bottom edge. Very good.
