The Chihuahua Rangers offers new perspectives of the Missouri volunteers and the Mormon Battalion of the Army of the West in the Mexican-American War. President James K. Polk said of Doniphan's Missouri volunteers: "The battle of Sacramento I consider to be one of the most decisive and brilliant achievements of the War." The meager reporting of this unpopular "President Polk's" war has dealt sparingly with the soldiers that fought it. The select company of Chihuahua Rangers has been occasionally footnoted in the histories, but often misidentified and non-reported during their most hazardous duties. This work follows all of the Missouri volunteers as they enroll in their county companies, muster into federal service, and face the privations of marches, occupations, and battles during their 5,100 miles of travel and one year of duty. From December 1, 1846 to their discharge in New Orleans, Louisiana, on June 24, 1847, readers will follow the Chihuahua Rangers as they march and fight in two battles with Colonel Doniphan and elements of his 1st Regiment. First person reporting adds accuracy and flavor to this "soldier's story." This work includes descriptions of the Chihuahua Rangers and a roster of its members, detailed descriptions of firearms and cannon, illustrations, appendices with official reports and an index to names, places and subjects.
