These materials present a vivid picture of the Mexican-American War from the Mexican perspective, with accounts of battles, political disputes, manifestos, profiles of military leaders, defiant statements directed towards the U.S. and at Mexican entities, and news and opinion on many aspects of the conflict, including U.S. occupation. This collection is a trove of scarce materials with direct reference to a fascinating and controversial period in Mexican and U.S. history from a locale for which little material survives from this period.
