Sample text

Military life appears to have agreed with young Abe sufficiently to prompt him to reenlist on 29 May. This time, however, he served as a private, being mustered out on 16 June. Lincoln saw no action during his 53 days of military service. Much of his time was spent slogging through swamps in search of Black Hawk and his men. He did, however, endure some physical hardship and helped to bury five men who had been killed and scalped by the Indians. During his brief military career Lincoln was twice under arrest for minor infractions of military law.

He helped resolve the "Aroostook War"a potentially dangerous border dispute which had already involved the militias of Maine and New Brunswickwith Canada (18371842) and he directed the removal of over 16,000 Indians from the Southeast to the Indian Territory (1838). Finally, in 1841 he was promoted major general and named general-in-chief. Scott's principal activity as general-in-chief was the conduct of the War with Mexico (18461848). Initially a supporter of Zachary Taylor's invasion of Northern Mexico, Scott became convinced that the only way to Page 24 "conquer a peace" was to seize Mexico City, and he bent all his efforts towards that objective.

Each artillery regiment comprised ten foot companies and two light companies. A number of the foot companies were assigned to coast defense duties; the garrison of the Charleston harbor forts in December of 1860 comprised two companies totaling 65 officers and men, plus eight bandsmen. The balance of the artillery was scattered in the West, where most served as infantry, since artillery was of little use against Indians. There were three types of horse soldiers in the army: dragoons, mounted rifles and cavalry.
