Matted 1860 engraving by Thomas Oldham Barlow, signed by Scott
Engraving signed "Winfield Scott". B/w, 9½x11¾ engraving mounted on 10½ x16¼ card. With 19¼x25¼ grey matting. image 3¾x4¾ (one surface). Engraved by Thomas Oldham Barlow from a painting by Professor R. W. Weir. Published by J. McClure, New York, in Jan. 1860. General Scott (1786-1866) rose to Major General in the War of 1812. During the Mexican War, he captured Vera Cruz, defeated the Mexicans at Cerro Gordo, Contreras, Churubusco, Molino del Rey and Chapultepec and occupied Mexico City. He was General in Chief of the U.S. Army from 1841-1861. The last presidential nominee of the Whig Party, "old Fuss n' Feathers" lost the election of 1852 to Democrat Franklin Pierce. Scott deserves to be recognized as one of the finest military leaders the U.S. has produced. His campaign from the coast to Mexico City, against a foe more skilled and tenacious than is generally recalled today, was bold, and brilliantly executed. The "Anaconda Plan" he proposed to President Lincoln in 1861, calling for a blockade of southern ports coordinated with a combined army/navy push down the Mississippi River to cut the Confederacy in half, provided the framework for ultimate Union victory. Lightly soiled and scratched, otherwise in fine condition.
