Lithographic map drawn by Capt. Linnard and surveyed by Lieutenants Pope and Franklin. A very detailed battle plan showing a crucial battle in the Mexican-American War. Outnumbered nearly 5 to 1, General Taylor's forces held, and finally defeated the advancing Mexican forces under General Santa Ana. A legend notes troop locations during the battle.
Good impression. Backed with tissue and pressed. Some light offsetting.
