Illustration depicting soldiers inching their way up the hill to Chapultepec. They are dressed in blue and carry the American flag. Around them are piled dead bodies of soldiers. In this image the landscape of Mexico City consists of distant mountains and the castle of Chapultepec on a hill. The rest of the area the soldiers march through is open space instead of the metropolitan area of Mexico City that has been established in this period.
