Conflict Breaks Out
The Bear Flag Revolt
When the war started with Mexico, the United States was outnumbered and unprepared. However, the U.S had better weapons than Mexico. Many Americans supported the war. President Polk ordered General Stephan Kearny to attack New Mexico and he successfully claimed New Mexico for the United States.
Mexico had wanted the Nueces River to lie along its norther border but the U.S said the border was farther south. John Slidell was a diplomat President Polk had sent and he came with an offer of 30 million dollars for New Mexico and California. John Slidell was ignored by Mexican officials.
