Mexican-American War: Chronicle of America’s Wars
Ruth Tenzer Feldman (au)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
In the 1830s, Mexico was more than twice the size that it is today and included the land that later would become Texas. Having recently won its independ. from Spain, the new Mexican gov’t. was struggling to maintain control of its territories. Texas took advantage of this turmoil and declared itself an independ. nation and later joined the U.S. From 1846 to 1848, Mexico and the U.S. engaged in a struggle over Texas known as the Mexican-Amer. War. The U.S. victory in the war and later negotiations brought Texas, Calif., New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and parts of Colorado and Wyoming into the U.S. This book takes a look at a volatile time in Amer. history and includes the role of women and minorities, weaponry, medical care and more.
