Framed hand tinted period print, 9-1/2" x 13-1/2, rare vertical image, (site, not removed from frame) published by E.C. Kellog, NYC, 1847, titled "Gen'l Taylor and His Staff, on the morning before the Battle of Buena Vista, Febry 23rd 1847. The print shows a porky General Taylor, his staff, below the waving America Flag. Older frame, nice print." Santa Anna had advanced to Carnero Pass below Agua Nueva on February 21 and on February 22 demanded Taylor's surrender, to which Taylor's aide, William Wallace Smith Bliss, replied, "I beg leave to say that I decline acceding to your request." Marshall and Ampudia's men skirmished by 3:30 pm, but darkness brought an end to the fighting. After dark, Taylor, escorted by the Mississippi Rifles, Colonel Jefferson Davis, and Charles A. May's dragoons, checked on the Saltillo garrison, but returned by 9:00 am on February 23. On February 23, some of Santa Anna's council of war at Agua Nueva advised withdrawal. The decision was to withdraw to Agua Nueva, and they left their campfires ablaze to confuse the U.S. troops.
