The Spanish Army in North America, 1700-1793, René Chartrand

The Spanish Army in North America, 1700-1793, René Chartrand

Men-at-Arms 475

The area covered in this entry in the Men-at-Arms series is vast - all of Central America, Cuba, Hispaniola, Mexico, Texas, Florida, California and from 1763 Louisiana. After a shaky start Spanish armies performed surprising well in this area (often against the British), so this is largely a look at a successful army. The book covers three distinct types of troops - regular soldiers sent out from Spain, regular soldiers from the Americas and the various forms of militia raised across this vast area. The troops covered in this book fought off British attacks, and took part in the American War of Independence, playing an important role in keeping the British busy in the south, so these armies are of some significance.

The text is supported by illustrations from a wide range of archives, from Mexico to Spain. These include a large number of contemporary illustrations of uniforms (many from manuscripts that could have been produced with just this sort of book in mind! A 1780 document showing the uniforms and colours of a whole series of regiments must have been a particularly welcome discovery).

Chartrand includes a chronology of the major military events in Spanish North America, complete with a list of the regiments involved in each battle or siege. He then moves on to look at the history of the Overseas Army, both regular and militia and the main Spanish army. About half of the book is taken up with the study of uniforms and equipment, which for this period is inevitably mostly a look at uniforms (although some of the militia units had some varied equipment). This structure works well - the sections of the armies, how they were organised and what they did are the most readable, and are kept nicely separate from the uniforms and equipment section, which is much more of a reference work. The book should be useful for anyone war gaming this period.

Men-At-Arms (Osprey): The Spanish Army in North America 1700-1793 (Paperback)

A classic Men-at-Arms title detailing a major chapter in American military history. North American colonial history can broadly be divided into 'New France', 'New England' and 'New Spain. The latter covered a vast expanse of land from California to the whole of the south-west and south including modern-day Florida, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi and Illinois. Spanish America played a significant role in British and American campaigns in particular the American Revolution. Spanish units fought against the British throughout the Revolution providing a major distraction to the British forces and helping in some way to ensure the eventual success of the colonials.

René Chartrand is an international authority on the subject, he has amassed an array of original archival documents and illustrations to provide a fresh perspective on the key units and actions throughout the continent. In particular, he has provided a detailed listing of exactly where Spanish units were raised and based including major forts and places of interest to visit. Interest in Spanish American history is on the increase and this is a timely discussion of an aspect of American military history which is too often overlooked.

The Spanish Army in North America 1700–1793: 475 Paperback – Illustrated, 20 November 2011

I was severely disappointed with this book in fact I bought men a arm products before but this one was severely lacking I will never buy one written by this guy Rene Chartrand.

More than half the book concentrates on company colors. there almost no mention of tactics used or description of the battles. the equipment mentioned is literally the last two pages. there no mention of the 15 Soldado de Cueras repelling the Tucson from 300 Apaches or their tactics used.

There almost little to no info on the weapons used like I said only two pages, there no description on the swords, muskets, escopetas (mention lot yet never any info on them) there too little info on Meztizo troops and no info at all of the indian scouts they used. This book to me was a waste of money. I mean these tiny books were known to provide tactics, military campaigns etc like I said almost 75% of it its about the colors of the uniforms. The Tittle is The Spanish Army in North America it should be named Uniform Colors of the Spanish Army in North America.

The Colors are described most of the pages were you see the drawings of that time are in black and white. so you are forced to see it in Black and White with his description. If you are looking for more info on war and strategy and weapons used this is not it it only uniforms. I dint even read most of the descriptions of uniforms while its nive the empathizes to much the uniforms war are not fought with uniforms.

Dutch Armies of the 80 Years’ War 1568–1648 (2)

Author : Bouko de Groot

Publisher : Bloomsbury Publishing

About Book: Throughout the 16th Century, the Spanish had an aura of invincibility. They controlled a vast colonial empire that stretched across the Americas and the Pacific, and held considerable territories in Europe, centring on the so-called 'Spanish Road'. The Dutch War of Independence (also known as the 80 Years' War) was a major challenge to their dominance. The Dutch army created by Maurice of Nassau used innovative new tactics and training to take the fight to Spain and in so doing created a model that would be followed by European armies for generations to come. The second in a two-part series on the Dutch armies of the 80 Years' War, focuses on the cavalry, artillery and engineers of the evolving armies created by Maurice of Nassau. Using specially commissioned artwork and photographs of historical artefacts, it shows how the Dutch cavalry arm, artillery, and conduct of siege warfare contributed to the long struggle against the might of the Spanish Empire.

The Spanish Army in North America 1700-1793

Una splendida collana di volumi illustrati dai più famosi disegnatori: ogni opera offre una panoramica sintetica ma completa sulle uniformi, le insegne, gli equipaggiamenti, ecc. di famosi corpi militari dalle legioni romane alla seconda guerra mondiale e oltre.

Long before England established a serious presence in the New World, Spain had already established an overseas Empire. In North America, this included vast tracts of territory including most of what today comprises the states of Florida, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Alabama, Illinois and California. In later years, as the British and the French came to expand their claims, they often came into conflict with the Spanish. The Spanish also played a significant part during the American Revolution, fighting against the British and drawing off forces needed to fight the Americans. This book covers all of the North American Spanish forces that fought in the campaigns of the 18th century.


Into History

When I get back, I plan on down loading copies from the bexar archives and the translations. Here is what my concern is: their translation.

Hello Gregg. I see that you figured out the blog. Has someone translated the Bexar archives?

Or the accuracy of their translation.

Your translation of the word botines as leggings. So the soldado would not be wearing botas de talon, a footless stockings. I'm a little confused?

The question of botas vs. botines is a subject for a later posting. For now, you should know that botas are what you want.

Another thing in question is: the image you posted, the soldado is wearing an infantry cartridge box?

Why would you think that? Both infantry and cavalry have traditionally used shoulder carriages for their cartridge boxes. Another good subject for a future post.

David: I was going back over some postings in the Yahoo Groups Soldados, in fact 8 Dec. 2002, you were discussing with Cornial Cox, the regs. and the differences between chupin and chupa corta. You said a chupa corta was a jacket and a chupin was a waist coa

Was cut off, but you were saying that a chupa corta was a jacket and chupin was a waist coat.? Now you're saying the translation for chupa corta is waist coat.

I'm glad you're interested and asking questions, Gregg, but you're getting ahead of me. My plan is to lay out as many of my sources as I can for how I reconstruct the soldados de cuera of the last quarter of the 18th century. I also plan to show how my thinking has evolved over the years as new sources come to light and I reconsider old ones. But to do this, I need to handle the story a bit at a time. My next post will be about the chupa corta.
