The 1848 Treaty Of Guadelupe-Hildago ...

  1. Fun fact: The US Army occupied the northeastern quadrant of Mexico (Matamoros west to Chihuahua and south to Tampico, as well as Vera Cruz inland to Mexico City) during the Mexican War, but chose not to keep it.


    Because the US Congress decided it wanted land that was UNOCCUPIED.

    Except for 2 small enclaves on the coast (San Francisco Bay to Monterey and Santa Barbara to San Diego), California was unsettled at the time of the war and, except for the Territory of New Mexico settled on the Rio Grande from Taos to El Paso, so was all the land east to San Antonio.

    Next time La Raza starts babbling about Aztlan, hit 'em with that.
