Details: This poster is of a lithograph titled Blowing up the Foundry by the Victorious American Army under General Worth. It shows U.S. troops in the Battle of Molino del Rey in the Mexican-American War. In the front are rows of troops in battle, and in the background they are blowing up the foundry.

The Battle of Molino del Rey was one of the bloodiest engagements of the Mexican-American War. On September 6, 1847, as the armistice and negotiations were breaking down, a large number of Mexican troops were observed around a group of low, massive stone buildings known as Molino del Rey (King's Mill). General Winfield Scott received reports that trees masked a foundry for casting cannon, and there were rumors that Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, leader of both the Mexican government and military, in desperate need of ordnance, was sending out church and convent bells to have them melted down and converted to cannon. Scott ordered General Worth to attack and take the Mill, break up the factory, and destroy any munitions found.

This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
