Excerpt from A Narrative of Major General Wool's Campaign in Mexico: In the Years 1846, 1847, and 1848

Other services, unconnected with the particular and appropriate duties of his Office, were not less important than the foregoing. Two missions were intrusted to him, the success Of which depended more on personal address than military force. By his energy and peculiar art of concilia tion, without military force, be restrained and pacified Cherokees, who would have plunged headlong into a war, which would have deso lated the frontiers of North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama, and have left nothing but blackened ruins and hearth-stones smoking with blood. On the northern boundary of Vermont, and the northeast ern border of New York, by indomitable energy and superlative tact, he kept back his own countrymen, who, regardless of all neutral and national Obligations, mad with enthusiasm and an ill-directed sympathy for per sons engaged, as they thought, in a struggle for liberty, would have heedlessly rushed into another war with Great Britain, without any na tional object to gain, or any national injury to avenge.

Such are the rich materials from which a biography might be con structed, which, in interest, would transcend many of the lives record ed by Plutarch, the great biographer of Greece and Rome.

On the l5th day Of May, 1846, Brigadier General Wool received an order from the Secretary of War, to repair without delay to Washington. On the same day, he left his head-quarters at Troy in the state of New York, for Washington, where he soon arrived, and reported himself to the general-ih-chief and the secretary. After a few days consultation on various subjects connected with the approaching campaign in Mexico.
