loadingMexican War (1846-48)
The Mexican-American War was an armed military conflict between the United States and Mexico from 1846 to 1848 in the wake of the 1845 U.S. annexation of Texas. Mexico did not recognize the secession and subsequent military victory by Texas in 1836; it considered Texas a rebel province. In the United States, the conflict was traditionally referred to simply as the Mexican War. In Mexico, it is referred to as La Intervenci en Norteamericana ("The North American Intervention"), La Invasiin Estadounidense ("The United States Invasion"), La Guerra de Defensa ("The Defensive War"), or La Guerra del 47 ("The War of '47"). In the United States, the war was a partisan issue, with most Whigs opposing it and most southern Democrats, animated by a popular belief in the Manifest Destiny (and the opportunity to gain territory for the expansion of slavery), supporting it. In Mexico, the war was considered a matter of national pride.
