Washington D.C.: Wendell and Van Benthuysen, 1848. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 12.75 x 9.5" This battle plan depicts the Battle of the Sacramento River, which took place in 1847 as part of the Mexican-American War. The movements of the small American forces and the larger Mexican army are clearly marked as they move around within the valley of the river. The patterns of the lines, hand-colored in red and blue, create a dazzling pattern over the topography of the region, which was been colored in brown and green. Below the rendering is a lettered key with ample description that describes the movements of the army. The map was first published as part of a Senate Executive Document in the aftermath of the Mexican-American War. It is in good condition with no chips or tears and minor wear along folds.
