As part of the release of "Gone To See The Elephant: Miniatures War Game Rules for the Mexican-American War, 1846-1848," a large collection of full color uniform plates and selected photos of US weapons and artillery was assembled from a variety of Internet sources.

However, due to the significant additional cost to the printed book these represented--not to mention possible copyright issues--the decision was made to exclude them from the published edition. However, the value and utility of this information is such that to anyone interested in this aspect of the Mexican War, the obvious alternative was to post these directly as a new Features Item at The (Virtual) Armchair General Website.

No matter which rules are preferred, nor the scale or make of the figures used, thorough uniform and weapons plates and illustrations are always valuable, and I believe collectors of the US Army will find this page especially useful.
