Welcome!

This website is meant as a tool to examine who fought for the United States in the Mexican American War. By using representative sampling, I have compiled estimates on the numbers of soldiers sent by each state to fight in the Mexican American War in the hope to see how soldiers were spread geographically. This data is by no means final, but was meant to get a general idea as to the geographical spread. I have also included a short history of the war and some links to writings by soldiers. So, click the menu in the top right corner and start exploring!
