Hello everyone!Today we will be talking about the causes and effects about the Mexican American War.
Back in the old day,Mexico and America had alot of conflicts between them.There were good things and bad things that came of the trouble.
Mexico and the U.S disagreed about annexing Texas to become a full legal state with United States.
On April 25, 1846, Mexican cavalry attacked a group of U.S. soldiers in the disputed zone under the command of General Zachary Taylor, killing about a dozen. They then laid siege near a American fort near Rio Grande. Zachary Taylor called for reinforcements and with the help of rifles and more soldiers they were able to defeat the Mexicans.
The Mexican-American War started in 1846 and it ended in 1848.Mexico lost one-third of its territory and including all present-day :Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico. United States won the war with Mexico and they annexed Texas with U.S.
