Scope and content

This series contains nine lithographed engravings for illustrations of a U.S. Secretary of the Treasury report on Army operations in Texas and Mexico. All the illustrations are drawn by Edward Everett, and engraved by C. B Graham Lithographers of Washington, D.C. All nine engraving in the papers have been hand-tinted with watercolors, with two versions each of two of the illustrations, probably representing different times of day. The engravings are almost all annotated by hand in ink or pencil, or both, and are listed in order as they appear in the published report of 1850. Also included are three maps of the South Texas and San Antonio area as well as portions of Mexico, and three leaves of plans, two for the same illustration drawn by Everett for the report showing the Alamo mission buildings in 1846 before renovation, and one of the San Antonio de Bexar area drawn by Everett some time later from memory.
