MEMOIR ON THE PROGRESS OF MILITARY DISCIPLINE, AND ON THE MEANS OF ESTABLISHING UNIFORMITY THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES' ARMY, IN THE SHORTEST PRACTICABLE PERIOD, AND THE BEST MANNER.

[np: 1814?]. 47, [1 blank] pp. Caption title [as issued]. Stitched, lightly tanned, scattered foxing. Very Good.

The anonymous author frets that, "Approaching to the close of the third year of war, the military force of the United States, is still floating in that state of uncertainty which amounts to the absence of military science; nothing is fixed, nothing explained." His plan to place the army "in a state of uniform and correct discipline" has been shredded in a maze of bureaucracy. He renews it more emphatically here, recommending "a principal depot for the instruction of officers and soldiers in the first military duties" and remedies for a variety of other "stumbling blocks." He resorts to military history to prove his points; pages 34-47 print, in facing French and English text, excerpts from the work of Folard.
