Summary
A critical assessment of the Mexican-American war and its divisive role in U.S. politics also evaluates its impact on the careers of James Polk, Henry Clay, and Abraham Lincoln and how it set the stage for the American Civil War
Summary
Often overlooked, the U.S.-Mexican War featured false starts, atrocities, and daring back-channel negotiations as it divided the nation, paved the way for the Civil War, and launched the career of Abraham Lincoln. Greenberg's difinitive history of the 1846 conflict is a story of Indian fights, Manifest Destiny, secret military maneuvers, gunshot wounds, and political spin. A key chapter in the creation of the United States, it is the history of a burgeoning nation and an unforgettable conflict that has shaped American history
