The successful storming of Chapultepec Castle on September 13, 1847. This view appeared in the portfolio “The War Between the United States and Mexico, Illustrated. Embracing Pictorial Drawings of All the Principal Conflicts by Carl Nebel, . . . With a Description of Each Battle, By Geo. Wilkins Kendall.” Kendall was the editor of the New Orleans newspaper “Daily Picayune” and traveled with the army as a war correspondent. He hired Nebel to create the twelve images that would be used to make prints to illustrate the book. Many consider this work to be most beautiful nineteenth-century publication relating to the early history of Texas. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Historical , Mexican American War
