This interesting map was published to describe the Battle of Mexico Line of Operations of the U.S. Army under the command of Major General Winfield Scott on the 19th and 20th of August 1847.
The map locates the Mexican Reserve under General Santa Ana as well as several American Brigades; the legend locates the brigades of Riley, Cadwalader, Smith, Shield, and Pierce, plus the Magruder and Calender's batteries, and much more. The very detailed plan names Cuyuacau, San Antonio, San Juan cte Dios, San Augustin, Magdalena, Anseldo, Contreras and San Angel. The topography shown in the focal point of the map is unusual – a field of lava. Brilliant use of hachure renders the areas depicted to appear three dimensional.
Condition: This highly detailed colored lithograph is in A condition. Folded as published.
