    Description

    [Mexican War] "Storming of Chapultepec - Pillow's Attack", a hand-colored lithograph from George Wilkins Kendall, The War Between The United States And Mexico Illustrated, Embracing Pictorial Drawings of All the Principle Conflicts by Carl Nebel. New York: D. Appleton & Co., 1851. Image size 16.5" x 10.75", with margins 23.5" x 17.75"; at left beneath image: "C. Nebel fecit.", at right: "Bayot litho", the number "10" is handwritten in pencil at top right corner. Soiling at all edges, particularly at top; with excellent color and detail, the colorplate is in near fine condition. Light bleeding of color at left and top margin, likely occurring at time of application, is mentioned for accuracy's sake. The artist has portrayed General Gideon Pillow's assault up the slopes of Chapultepec castle on September 13, 1847, which can be seen in the background. The eventual fall of Chapultepec was a critical victory. It resulted in the entire Mexican line falling back to the gates of Mexico City. The combat resulted in 2,000 Mexican and 450 American casualties.
