NYC - Greenwich Village: General Winfield Scott House

NYC - Greenwich Village: General Winfield Scott House

The General Winfield Scott House, at 24 West 12th Street, was built between 1851-52 by Charles Patridge in the Anlgo-Italianate style, as is revelaed by the large paneled cornice and the decorations above the doors and windows. The 4-story, semi-detached brownstone was purchased by General Winfield Scott in 1853. Scott would reside here with his wife for eight years.

In 1998, Dr. John Brademas, president of New York University, introduced the building as a $4 million gift from Baroness Mariuccia Zerilli-Marimo to be used for the creation of Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimo, the new home for the university's Italian studies.

Winfield Scott was a United States Army general, diplomat, and presidential candidate. Known as "Old Fuss and Feathers" and the "Grand Old Man of the Army", he served on active duty as a general longer than any other man in American history and most historians rate him the ablest American commander of his time. Over the course of his fifty-year career, he commanded forces in the War of 1812, the Mexican-American War, the Black Hawk War, the Second Seminole War, and, briefly, the American Civil War, conceiving the Union strategy known as the Anaconda Plan that would be used to defeat the Confederacy.

A national hero after the Mexican War, he served as military governor of Mexico City. Such was his stature that, in 1852, the United States Whig Party passed over its own incumbent President of the United States, Millard Fillmore, to nominate Scott in the U.S. presidential election. Scott lost to Democrat Franklin Pierce in the general election, and after his defeat, Scott moved the headquarters of the Army to New York with the authorization of the newly elected President Franklin Pierce.

He remained a popular national figure, receiving a brevet promotion in 1856 to the rank of lieutenant general, becoming the first American since George Washington to hold that rank. Having discovered that there was a plot to assassinate the newly elected President Abraham Lincoln, in 1861 Scott, put into effect some security measures that protected the President until his swearing-in ceremony. That same year, returning to private life at 75 years of age, the General was lauded by President Lincoln before Congress for having served the country "with loyalty, ability and intelligent acumen".

Combined Joint 30th Birthday and Housewarming Cake!

Combined Joint 30th Birthday and Housewarming Cake!

This is for a party tonight to celebrate the joint 30th birthdays of a husband and wife and also to "warm" their new house!

The wife is the daughter of very great friends of ours and I have known her since before she was born! She is also one of our daughter's best friends and the two "Catherines" (yes, they have the same name !!!) have grown up together. Our Catherine unfortunately can't be there tonight as she is in Miami (!), so the "Golden Oldies" will have to party doubly hard on her behalf !!!! LOL

(I am banking on the fact that the hostess Catherine will be too busy today to look on flickr as she knows nothing about this cake ..... so fingers crossed please !!!!!! )

Rich fruit cake (made by the Birthday Girl's mother) with marzipan and fondant icing ..... mexican paste decorations.

Thanks to 'to.savour' for the idea on how to do the '30' !
