Sam Chamberlain’s Mexican War: The San Jacinto Museum of History Paintings
"Sam Chamberlain's Mexican War is an important book. . . . There is no other collection of such impressive dimension that reflects the experiences of a common volunteer soldier."
--Robert W. Johannsen, author of To the Halls of the Montezumas: The Mexican War in the American Imagination
Private Sam Chamberlain provided up-close views of the Mexican War. This book reproduces these treasures for the first time in color.
Publication of this book was made possible by a grant from the Summerlee Foundation of Dallas.
