A bloody and hard-fought conflict, the Mexican-American War was the early training ground for many of the most important military figures in American history, including Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee. This encyclopedia illuminates its battles and skirmishes, heroes and villains on both sides, and the political strategies and maneuvers. Between 1846 and 1848, the United States and Mexico engaged in a conflict that resulted in major Mexican territorial losses and honed the battlefield skills of Ulysses S. Grant, Robert E. Lee, and other U.S. officers who later took part in the Civil War. The A-Z entries, many of them illustrated, range over such diverse subjects as abolitionists, the Battle of El Brazito, John C. Calhoun, Antonio Campazano, Manifest Destiny, and many more. This chronology provides an overview of key events and an extensive bibliography of titles in both English and Spanish.
