Description: Battle of Cerro Gordo, Between General Scott and Santa Anna; 1847 lithograph of the battle of Cerro Gordo, Mexico, April 17 and 18, 1847 during the Mexican-American War (1846-1848), depicting Mexican General Santa Anna (Antonio de Padua Maria Severino Lopez de Santa Anna y Perez de Lebron; February 21, 1794-June 21, 1876) leading the Mexican Army in full retreat over the crest of a hill, leaving behind his dinner and his artificial leg that was made of cork; in fierce hand-to-hand combat in the Battle of Cerro Gordo, U.S. casualties were 63 killed and 337 wounded, while Santa Anna lost 204 officers and 2,837 men by capture alone; Santa Anna became president of Mexico on seven non-consecutive occasions of a period of 22 years; Winfield Scott ( June 13, 1786-May 29, 1866), known as "Old Fuss and Feathers" and the "Grand Old Man of the Army," was a national hero after the Mexican-American War, but an unsuccessful candidate for President of the United States; the war was a U.S. and Mexican territorial dispute between the Nueces and Rio Grande Rivers that led to open war between the two countries on May 13, 1846; the war ended with U.S. troops in possession of California, the Southwest, northern Mexico, and central Mexico from Veracruz to Mexico City; in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, Mexico ceded to the U.S. the territories of California and New Mexico and all the land up to the Rio Grande River, and also relinquished its claim to Texas; in return, the U.S. paid Mexico $15 million;
