Description

Most Civil War generals were graduates of West Point, and many of them helped transform the U.S. Army from what was little better than an armed mob that performed poorly during the War of 1812 into the competent fighting force that won the Mexican War. Wayne Wei-siang Hsieh demonstrates how the ""old army"" transformed itself into a professional military force after 1814, and, more important, how ""old army"" methods profoundly shaped the conduct of the Civil War.

Author Biography

Wayne Wei-siang Hsieh is assistant professor of history at the United States Naval Academy and has served with the U.S. State Department on a Provincial Reconstruction Team in Iraq.
