    Description

    [Mexican War]. Program to Part One of Mexico Illustrated at Stoppani Hall. New York: George F. Nesbitt, Stationer and Printer, 1848. 8vo, 36 pages. Blue printed wrappers. Wrappers are chipped on the bottom edges; pages are heavily dampstained throughout, but the text remains bright.

    In 1848, following the conclusion of the Mexican War, an exhibition was presented at Stoppani Hall in New York City showing key events of the war, painted on canvas. Given in two parts, part one featured a "continuous view, of the extraordinarily diversified landscape, from the city of Vera Cruz to the city of Mexico." The purpose of the painting was to give a "faithful, and picturesque representation, of the lines of march pursued by the American armies" by showing the geographical location of each battle beginning with the landing near Vera Cruz on March 9, 1847, to the capture of Mexico City in September of the same year. This booklet contains a synopsis of the events portrayed. TSHA member donation. All proceeds, including Buyer's Premium, will go to support TSHA.
