General Mariano Arista, this has been a hard fought war.
Commodore Mathew C. Perry, your success is well deserved. Our inddinfrences have had a great cost on our people.
I think the new territory that we won in CA and OR should be free of slavery.
No! We must keep in balance the ratio of slave and free states that we currently have.
People of Mexico, we have lost thousands of men, cities got destroyed by bombs, and our ports have been demolished. We must focus on reconstruction.
This war has caused much debate and unrest in our government. We have seen a constant transition of power that makes or nation unstable. We will start reconstructing our government by stabilizing out governemnt.
I know moral is low in Mexico right now because of the great loss. It will take a LONG time to heal but eventually this resentment we feel towards the yankees will fade away.
In the US several years after the war...
People of the US, the conflict between slave and non-slave states has only escalated sense the Mexico - American War. The debate over new territories being free of slavery or not as brought us into a civil war.
