A Western StoryLarge Print - 2011
Colonel Alexander Doniphan was an inexperienced battle commander who managed to create a loyal, and formidable, fighting force out of a thousand 1st Missouri Volunteers. His men fight mightily against the Mexicans in New Mexico, but then Doniphan is called on to make peace where enmity has been brewing for 200 years! Doniphan's Thousand shines a light on the personal stories of the enlisted men of this mighty volunteer army, men who are driven by myriad reasons to leave everything behind and risk their lives for their country.
