Opposite: Rough and Ready: "A little more grape Cap. Bragg" by Sam Chamberlain,

into Museum of History.
This painting, like the one on the front cover, is from the forthcoming TSHA
book Sam Chamberlain's Mexican War: The San Jacinto Museum of History Paintings.

Taylor calmly telling Capt. Braxton Bragg, later a Confederate general, to load
his guns with "a little more grape." In fact, Taylor's actual words were "Well dou-
ble-shot your guns and give 'em hell, Bragg," but the story has become part of
the legend of Taylor and the great Battle of Buena Vista--a legend that helped
carry him to the White House.
Here’s what’s next.
