Description

Rare large edition of this fine detailed Mexican War Battle plan, depicting one of the very few battles fought in California during the Mexican War.

The battle, which occurred not far from the present site of the San Diego Wild Animal Park in North San Diego County, is depicted in great detail, including the various positions of the Mexicans and Americans during the two day battle, routes, and encampments. The San Pascual Indian Village is also shown.

The battle was led by Stephen Kearny, with 400 men. When he ran into difficulties, another 40 marines were sent from San Diego by Commodore Stockton.

A Mexican War Battle plan is relatively uncommon. This is the larger edition of the plan from the official US Government Reports, not to be confused with the smaller version which accompanies Emory's book.
