Period color lithograph, 24" x18" print titled, "Landing of the Troops at Vera Cruz," during Mexican-American War. Soldiers, cannon and armaments have been landed ashore as tall-masted warships and landing craft ply the distant waters. U.S. flag waves over the scene. This was the frontispiece of the book, published in 1848 by John Frost, "Pictorial History of Mexico and the Mexican War..." Thus, the production folds remain and have been reinforced. Shrink wrapped on poster board. Richmond, Harold and Murray, 1851. During the Mexican-American War, U.S. forces under General Winfield Scott invade Mexico three miles south of Vera Cruz. Encountering little resistance from the Mexicans massed in the fortified city of Vera Cruz, by nightfall the last of Scott's 10,000 men came ashore without the loss of a single life. It was the largest amphibious landing in U.S. history and not surpassed until World War II.
