Klappentext

Excerpt from Life of Major General Zachary Taylor; With an Account of His Early Victories, and Brilliant Achievements in Mexico Including the Siege of Monterey and Battle of Buena Vista, Also Sketches of Maj. Ringgold, Brown, Col. Cross, Capt. Etc

The author of the Life and Times of Louis Phi lippe, says in his preface, The desire that is implanted in the human breast, of approaching those who have filled distinguished parts in the theatre of human ac tion - those who have secured the highest pedestals in the pantheon of political fame - those who have ac quired a memorable name by the exercise of personal authority over a large portion of their fellow-creatures, will forever give to biography a high moral in uence, and an interest superior to any that general history can excite. Time intervenes to remove us from a familiar intercourse with the greatest characters - space also pro duces a similar separation, but, the evil of both cases has found its remedy in the truthful and laborious produc tions of impartial writers.

These remarks are applicable to the biography before us, the latter being representative of the career and actions of an individual who has occupied a large space in his country's history and affections, and which actions should form an interesting and useful portion of our political knowledge. Neither can we imagine a task that partakes more of the nature of a duty than that of commemorating, in a substantial form, the services rendered by an individual to his country, especially when those services are of a marked and valuable character.
