I thought I'd put this comment in a blog of my own...

Now, WoW, don't take this wrong, but I am absolutely correct about the sale of California comming later.....Here is the chronological history of events:

1845: The independent Republic of Texas (1836-1845) is annexed to the United States. The territory of Texas extended north to 42 degrees north (into modern Wyoming) due to a secret treaty between Mexico and Texas

1848: The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo following the Mexican War between the U.S. and Mexico resulted in the purchase of Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, and western Colorado.
(Please note, the key word here is PURCHASE)

1853: With the Gadsden Purchase of 1853, the land acquisition that resulted in the area of the 48 contiguous states today was completed. Southern Arizona and southern New Mexico were purchased for $10 million and named for the U.S. minister to Mexico, James Gadsden.

Here is my reference link:
US Boundary History

Keep in mind, the Alamo was fought during the Texas Revolution in 1836

The Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo.
It was ratified by The U.S. And Mexican governments, and, on July 4, 1848, President Polk proclaimed it. It stipulated the evacuation of Mexico by the American troops within three months; the payment of $3,000,000 in hand, and $12,000,000 in four annual installments, by the United States to Mexico, for New Mexico and California, which had become territory of the United States by conquest, and, in addition, to assume debts due certain citizens of the United States from Mexico to the amount of $3,500,000. It also fixed boundaries and otherwise adjusted matters in dispute

You are correct in what you submit. So am I. What you correctly elaborate on involves the specifics of the peace treaty ending the war and formalizing the end of the hostilities.

Before the war, there were American settlers entering into both Texas and California that later declared independence as sovereign republics. There is much more to this saga of American history. But that covers it in a nutshell, except that the California gold rush plays a big role in this.

Not that anyone cares, but I was raised in California, so I have a handle on this.

Good post

Excellent job of presenting an unnecessary rebuttal. Not only did I gain additional knowledge and insight regarding the past, but some interesting correlative parallels to the situation as it exists today.

The Mexican-American War was the first major conflict driven by the idea of "Manifest Destiny"; the belief that America had a God-given right, or destiny, to expand the country's borders from 'sea to shining sea'.

Some additional food for thought. Interesting......
