Description
 
The Mexican War (1846-1848) was the U.S. Army’s first experience waging an extended conflict in a foreign land. This brief war is often overlooked by casual students of history since it occurred so close to the Amer. Civil War. Yet, the Mexican War was instrumental in shaping the geographical boundaries of the U.S. At the conclusion of this conflict, the U.S. had added some one million sq. miles of territory, incl. what today are the states of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, & Calif. as well as portions of Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, & Nevada. The Mexican War still has much to teach us about projecting force, conducting operations in hostile territory with a small force that is dwarfed by the local population, urban combat, & the difficulties of occupation.
