About this Item

Uncolored line engraving. Sheet size: 18 x 22 5/8". Inventory#: p325pmat. This is a vigorous and rugged portrayal of the heroic and suicidal British advance against the powerful American defensive fortification commanded by General Andrew Jackson. Jackson became a national hero in this battle and is portrayed in the lower margin surrounded by the flag and various implements of war. The scene in the print depicts the wounded and dying British officers including Major General Packenham, H. T. Shaw the Brigade Major and General Gibbs in the foreground, while in the distance the "Redcoats" advance against the American redoubt amidst smoke and gunfire from cannons and muskets. The torn and dirty Union Jack is seen beside the dying Packenham, while the Stars and Stripes waves unscathed on a hill in the distance. The principal figures are lettered on the print, and correspond to a key below identifying each. The artist, William Edward West (1788-1857) was born in Lexington, Ky, studied under Thomas Scully in Philadelphia, worked there until about 1818 when he went to Natchez, Miss. He later painted in Europe before returning to the United States where he worked in Baltimore, New York and Nashville. Joseph Yeager (c. 1792-1859) the engraver worked in Philadelphia from 1809 to about 1849, where he engraved portraits and scenic views. Bookseller Inventory # 000325
