"Bombardment of Vera Cruz"

The Mexican War was the first major American war fought primarily on foreign soil. Vera Cruz was a key seaport for Mexico, and therefore an essential target. The port was invaded in March, 1847, by an army led by General Winfield Scott. This hand-colored lithograph was engraved by Bayot after a drawing by Carl Nebel.
