"The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (Tratado de Guadalupe Hidalgo in Spanish) is the peace treaty, largely dictated by the United States to the interim government of a militarily occupied Mexico City, that ended the Mexican-American War (1846 – 48) on February 2, 1848.I would argue that Mexico is still waging war today.
With the defeat of its army and the fall of the capital, Mexico surrendered to the United States and entered into negotiations to end the war."
In 1848, James Polk(D) was president. General Scott was the hero of the war. Many thought the war a pre-text to expand slave holding territory. Thoreau's essay, "Civil Disobedience," emerged out of his experience opposing the Mexican-American War.
"Under the terms of the treaty negotiated by Trist, Mexico ceded to the United States Upper California and New Mexico. This was known as the Mexican Cession and included all of present-day California, Nevada and Utah as well as most of Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado.
Mexico relinquished all claims to Texas and recognized the Rio Grande as the southern boundary of the United States."
Those who cannot - or will not - remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
The current crop of seditious La RACIST / Aztlan agitators know this all too well, as borne out by the current truth of revisionist history indoctrinating students in California / Arizona gub'mint schools, paid for by your tax dollars. At each and every protest against the U.S. of A. by these seditious La RACIST / Aztlan agitators, cries of "this land was stolen!" can be heard.
Wrong. This land was not stolen. It was won by conquest.
Hence, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
GET. OVER. IT.
Or go back to Mexico.
However, you can keep the land of fruits n nuts with its $19 billion/yr deficit.
Oh. And mind the alligators.
