The palmetto symbol of the South Carolina regiment's heroic exploits at Cherubusco, Vera Cruz, and Chapultapec became the rallying cry for South Carolinians in general, as well as for veterans of the Mexican War. This engraving of the palmetto was part of a large roll call of the members of the regiment, printed in memory of those who fought in Mexico from 1846-1848.
