About This Item

Philadelphia: Published by R, Magee, 1847. Oblong 10" x 14", lithograph colored by hand. Colors and image bright and clear, with light blank margin foxing. Very Good plus, in an archival mat with mylar sheet. A dramatic depiction of the clash between American and Mexican forces, with charging cavalry and two apparently disembodied heads [with the Mexican's shoulders] struggling on the battleground. This rare image depicts a heroic event in the Mexican-American War. In March 1847, Tennessee-born cavalry officer William S. Harney and his dragoons scouted out a large contingent of Mexican soldiers near Vera Cruz. General Winfield Scott dispatched Harney, his dragoons, and 150 men from the Second Regiment of Tennessee Volunteers. Conflict erupted: Harney's dragoons slashed through the Mexican infantry, literally running their horses over them; they then dispatched the Mexican lancers. With small losses of their own, American forces won the day. Not located on OCLC, or the online sites of AAS, Boston Athenaeum, Huntington, NYPL, Newberry, Yale, U TX, Clements as of June 2018. The Library of Congress owns a copy.
