    Description

    [Mexican War] "Battle of Cerro Gordo", 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 16.75" x 10.75", with margins 23.5" x 17.75"; at left beneath image: "C. Nebel fecit.", at right: "Bayot lith", the number "5" is handwritten in pencil at top right corner. Very light soiling to all edges of wide margins, with wear at all corners, including a small crease at top right, all well away from image; with excellent color and detail, the colorplate is in fine condition with clean colors and detail. William J. Worth led his units in the successful attack on Cerro Gordo on April 18, 1847. The U.S. engineers included future Confederate generals Robert E. Lee, P.G.T. Beauregard, and Joseph E. Johnston; and their efforts allowed the Americans to dominate Santa Anna's forces. In this scene the artist depicts the American troops in the foreground with the battle raging in the far distance high on the mount.
