Hello everybody we have come to talk about the impact of the Mexican-American war on the Civil war.
As most of you may very well know when we fought the Mexican-American war we absorbed the Lone-Star Republic which is where we got Texas
The war devastated them which is why they took so long to join a side in the war, however they finally joined a side and not one that we like the confederate union. The good thin that came out of this is we obtained 2,000 troops from Texas which will inevitably help us win this war.
The Confederates got 25,000 troops from Texas and they joined them it is a major advantage for them. It is an unfortunate thing that Texas joined the Confederacy now Texas is supplying them with men and horses as well as being a good place for Europeans to smuggle them supplies.
