Description

During the Mexican - American War (1846-1848), Brigadier General Steven Watts Kearny, in command of the U.S. Army of the West, led his troops 900 miles down the Santa Fe Trail from Leavenworth, Kansas to Santa Fe, where he successfully claimed the New Mexico territory for the United States in August, 1846.

Once the territory was in American hands and a civilian government established, General Kearny and 300 troops left to claim California from Mexico. On the trail to California, Kearny encountered the famous scout, Kit Carson, carrying important dispatches informing Kearny that the U.S now controlled California. It is believed that during his epic march Kearny brought with him a folding chair similar to the Kearny Campaign chair.

This chair features a solid ash frame, metal grip detail where the leather arm wraps around two metal posts finished in Modern Gun Metal. The leather is pulled taut across the frame and accented with a nail trim.

*Due to the unique nature of this design, no two chairs will be exactly alike. The leather will continue to develop additional wrinkles and color changes as it’s used, creating wonderfully distinct characteristics.
