Samuel E. Chamberlain ¶ 0 free read My Confession Recollections of a Rogue review ï 100 Samuel Chamberlain's My Confession is a classic ribald tale of nineteenth century life Perhaps the best written account of a soldier's adventures and misadventures in the Mexican War and its aftermath this unexpurgated edition is now available for the first time complete with over 150 of Chamberlain's wonderful textual illustrations reproduced in full color If you enjoyed the Chamberlain paintings assembled in Sam Chamberlain's Mexican WarThe San Ja. When I went to pick up a copy of My Confession from the library I was expecting some dusty old paperback filled with dry accounts of long forgotten troop movements The librarian however handed me a massive tome nearly a foot by a foot and a half closed which I actually tried to read on the bus threatening to take up two seats if I opened the book flat I got some odd looks that month and my arm still hurts from lugging it aroundThis lushly illustrated and uestionably reliable autobiography of Mexican American War veteran and later civil war brigadier general Samuel Chamberlain served as the basis for Cormac McCarthy s epic Blood MeridianThis sweeping but freuently misspelled narrative is full of bloody battles ghosts passionate love saturnalia heartless massacres narrow escapes and a confrontation with the devil himself It attempts the episodic grandeur of Homer the down home wit of Twain and with the aid of perhaps a dozen or senoritas a flavor of Don JuanDespite his accounts of wartime atrocity and the murder of innocents Chamberlain remains ever chivalrous throughout the story But much like his descriptions and paintings of battles and locations he s historically known to never have seen they remain a constant uestion and come off as self aggrandizement most times obliviously but sometimes intentionally for comic effect After all Chamberlain s motivation for the book was a public demand for Mexican War inspired romance adventures which unfortunately had died down by the time the book was finished and the Civil War had begunFor McCarthy fans who are curious about this source material be aware that Chamberlain s time with John Glanton s gang of scalp hunters is only covered by the last few chapters of this 300 page book the majority of which covers his time with American dragoons in the Mexican War Those few chapters however are a fascinating and enlightening look at the inspiration of McCarthy s opus particularly the accounts of Judge Holden who s description as a pale fleshy giant with an unmatched intellect and propensity for child murder has been surprisingly little exaggerated by McCarthy
