These three volumes of Infantry tactics were based on the French Ordinances of 1831 and 1845, for the maneuvers of heavy infantry and chasseurs a' pied. Both of these systems were in use by the U.S. military for many years; the former having been translated by Lieutenant-General Scott, and the latter by Lieutenant-Colonel Hardee. Brigadier General Casey for many years studied the maneuvers of infantry.  In 1854 he became president of a board assembled by the War Department, for the review, correction of the translation of Lieutenant-Colonel Hardee.  With the changes in weapons over the next seven-years, Casey saw the need to change the provisional movements and formations in order of battle.
