Mexican War map & Mexico City

The map below is from The Mexican War: A History of Its Origin, by Edward Deering Mansfield (Jan 1848). This shows the road to Mexico City from Veracruz via National Bridge and Jalapa, where the Tennessee 5th Infantry was stationed.

While Company G did not advance to Mexico City, I traveled there in March 2009. It was a beautiful city and I hope to go back in the future.
