General Winfield Scott

Winfield Scott
"Winfield Scott. Lieut. General, Commanding U.S. Army." New York: Charles Magnus, 1858. Two tone lithograph. Oval portrait, ca. 15 1/4 x 13. Very good condition.

Though first issued just before the war, this portrait shows Scott, Commander in Chief of the U.S. Army, as he was at the beginning of the conflict. Though he did not play a very active role in the war, his image as America's military leader was very important through the war, and so portraits such as this would have graced many homes at the time. $250



Gen. Winfield Scott
"Major General Winfield Scott." New York: T.W. Strong, ca. 1847. Lithograph. Vignette, ca. 12 x 9. Original hand color. Very good condition.

A print of Scott probably issued shortly after the Mexican War, as Mexican-style buildings are shown in the background. Scott was one of the American heroes of that conflict and by the Civil War had become Commander in Chief of the U.S. forces. $325
