    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 of Chamberlain's wonderful textual illustrations reproduced in full color/5(96).   Sam Chamberlain relates deaths of soldiers to Mexican guerrillas and duty in the occupation but more often than not, Sam Chamberlain proclaims preposterous pick-ups with a host of women. The reader almost senses the author is bragging to fellow high schoolers in a locker room or to anyone who will listen in a bar, hence the title of the book is /5(4).

My Confession: Recollections of a Rogue: Samuel Chamberlain, William H. Goetzmann: Books -

    Sam Chamberlain’s My Confession: Recollections of a Rogue is a rambling, bawdy, and remarkable tale by a true American original. Born in New Hampshire in , Samuel Emery Chamberlain fled. The discovery of this manuscript of a diary kept by a U.S. soldier a century ago, during the Mexican War &#; and now released for first publication by Life through a descendant and namesake of the diarist, may well produce a fanfare that will alert an audience. These are the unblushing revelations of as sanguine and passionate a man as history can boast. Making even Cellini a mere lily.
