Very nice black and white map printed to accompany the bound official reports of the Mexican War. This fold-out map meas. approx. 21.50 x 15.00 inches and shows the defenses at Cerro Gordo and the route of the attack of the American forces led by General Winfield Scott. The action took place on the 17 & 18 of April 1847.

Being a fold-out map it of course has several vertical and horizontal creases but is otherwise in very nice condition. There are no tears and there is only some minor surface dirt along one side. All details are crisp and sharp.

One of the surveyors for the map was Captain George B. McClellan of the Topographical Engineers who would later lead the Army of the Potomac as a major general during the Civil War.

A great item to frame and display or to use as a reference by any student of the Mexican War.  [ad] [ph:L]
