About Me Midrange Shopper
Captures a pivotal moment in American history. As a result of the Mexican War the US achieved its dreams of Manifest Destiny, adding New Mexico, Arizona and California. The Regiment of the First Mississippi Rifles, carrying one of the finest long arms of the day, turned the tide of the Battle of Buena Vista. This crucial battle settled the northern campaign. The Texas Rangers were considered too gung ho by General Zachary Taylor and were asked to return to Texas. The rifle-- a model 1841 Harpers Ferry--came to be known as the Mississippi Rifle. The regiment was led by Colonel Jefferson Davis--later US Secretary of War and still later, President of the Confederacy.
