Thirty Years Of Army Life On The Border

Randolph B. Marcy

""Thirty Years of Army Life on the Border"" is a memoir written by Randolph B. Marcy, a career military officer who served in the United States Army for over three decades during the mid-19th century. The book provides a detailed account of Marcy's experiences on the western frontier, where he was stationed for much of his career. Marcy describes the challenges of life on the border, including the harsh climate, hostile Native American tribes, and the difficulties of maintaining law and order in a remote and often lawless region. He also provides insights into the military tactics and strategies used by the Army during this period, as well as the political and social dynamics of the time. The book is a valuable historical document that offers a firsthand account of life on the frontier during a pivotal period in American history.Comprising Descriptions Of The Indian Nomads Of The Plains; Explorations Of New Territory; A Trip Across The Rocky Mountains In The Winter; Descriptions Of The Habits Of Different Animals Found In The West, And The Methods Of Hunting Them; With Incidents In The Life Of Different Frontier Men, Etc.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
