About this Item

Contains the letter of transmittal of the Secretary of War and Brig. Gen. Gideon J. Pillow's supplemental report to Gen. Winfield Scott detailing the actions of his brigade during the battle of Cerro Gordo, 18 April 1847. Cerro Gordo was situated astride a mountain pass en route to Mexico City and was a natural position from which to block the American advance from Vera Cruz. Pillow's command was charged with creating a diversion in front of the Mexican line of entrenchments, defended by artillery and infantry armed with muskets, as the bulk of Scott's army swung around the Mexican flank and rear. Government document: 32d Congress, 1st Session. Senate. Ex. Doc. No. 51. 8vo. 4 pp. Removed from a nonce volume. Very good. Bookseller Inventory # 14091
