"MUCH OF INTEREST FOR TEXAS AND THE WEST AND THE INDIAN WARS"PINGENOT
273. RODENBOUGH, Theo[philus] F[rancis] &
William L. Hasken. The Army of the United States:
Historical Sketches of Staff and Line with Portraits of
Generals-in-Chief. New York: Maynard, Merrill &
Co., 1896. xi , 741 pp., 17 stipple engraved portraits
(George Washington, James Wilkinson, Winfield Scott, Henry
W. Halleck, Ulysses Simpson Grant, William Tecumseh
Sherman, Philip Henry Sheridan, Nelson Appleton Miles,
et al.). Royal 8vo, original plum cloth (neatly
rebacked, original spine retained). Binding slightly
abraded and corners of upper cover bumped. One plate with

First edition. Garrett, The Mexican-American War, pp. 126-27 (citing only the 1966 reprint). This work contains much of interest for Texas and the West and the Indian Wars. Pingenot: This is a work difficult to find in collectors condition. Much rarer than Rodenboughs "From Everglade to Canyon." A detailed history of the artillery, 10th Cavalry and 25th Infantry to 1896, as well as the 2nd Cavalry which became the 5th Cavalry, etc. For some units, like the 8th and 9th cavalry this is the best and most detailed account extant. It is both useful and rare. Not in Howes, Graff, Rader, or any other major bibliography.
