Preparations for War


256.    

[MEXICAN ARMY]. A contemporary hand-sewn sammelband of two manuscripts and five broadsides held together with contemporary stitching at left margin. The two contemporary manuscripts are 12mo and list the broadsides. All the broadsides are creased where formerly folded, have chipped margins, and two small wormholes not affecting text. These are Bravo’s promulgations of the orders, almost all of which were originally issued by Paredes y Arrillaga.

At the time these broadsides were issued, tensions were mounting in Texas over the movement of Taylor’s army and war seemed a growing possibility.
