Fought for territory and not for ideals, the Mexican-American War was precipitated by the U.S. annexation of Texas and ended with the Treaty of Guadeloupe Hidalgo (1848), by which Mexico ceded to the U.S. two fifths of its land, including California. U·X·L®'s Mexican American War covers not only the ferocious battles that marked the conflict but also the mixed feelings of Americans regarding the war. This single volume contains an almanac section, a biography section and a primary sources section. Included are approximately 60 black-and-white photographs; 10 biographies; a timeline, glossary and subject index.
