The Mexican - American war was fueled by the conflict that occurs in the Rio Grande and the Nueces River. This conflict was made up by the USA, and the story was that mexican troops killed American soldiers that were passing by there border.

General Make sure to secure this land, Its for the greater good of our nation
We must protect our land from these gringos!!!
The results of the war were: Mexico losing close to half of their country, Mexico losing lives, and Mexico having bigger problems with each other. Also, the treaty of Guadalupe was signed which was just a treaty that made Mexico surrender and sell the land that they were fighting for not to sell

This war has a connection to chicano studies because you can say that this was what gave birth to the movement chicanos. The reason why this is correct is because this war gave people a reason to speak up for themselfs, and this can be seen the most in the part that the USA took from Mexico
