   Expanding the Empire                                                       
                                                                              
   March across the plains of southern Texas with the 4th US Infantry which   
   included in its ranks the young Lieutenant Sam Grant. Accompany the        
   elite US Engineers, its members including Lee, Beauregard, McClellan,      
   Joe Johnston and other soon-to-be-famous officers, as they pry into the    
   Mexican dispositions to find an opening that would lead to victory.        
   Bounce across the arroyos at Buena Vista on the seat of a caisson in a     
   battery commanded by Captain Braxton Bragg, or ride with the US Dragoons   
   alongside Dick Ewell, back in the days when he still had hair--and both    
   legs! Mexican-American War is a tactical level simulation of this          
   conflict using the Early American Wars engine.                             
                                                                              
   The war with Mexico presents some fascinating parallels and contrasts      
   with our current history. Mexico in 1846 had a standing army of about      
   35,000 men, while the Regular Army of the United States mustered only      
   about 7,000 soldiers, with most of them scattered across the western       
   borders of the country, protecting settlers and battling Indians.          
   Employing advanced tactics and superior technology, especially that of     
   the artillery, the US prevailed. Luck, boldness, and skill had something   
   to do with it, too.                                                        
                                                                              
   You have an opportunity with this game to rewrite the history of a         
   forgotten war, fought in 1846 and 1847 between The United States of        
   America and the nation of Mexico. In scope, in the sweeping panorama of    
   deserts and mountains, from lush California to Mexico City's verdant       
   basin, it is unrivaled in the Western Hemisphere, even by the American     
   Civil War which began only fifteen years later. From Texas to the          
   Pacific, from Northern California to Central Mexico, battles, skirmishes   
   - and diplomacy - over a period of two years determined the ultimate       
   outline of the continental United States as we know it today. You will     
   also do battle in a conflict only slightly better known to Americans -     
   the Texas War of Independence, fought in 1835-36. From "Come and Take      
   It!"  to "Remember the Alamo," you will fight until the decisive battle    
   of San Jacinto settles the issue.
