Description : Focusing on ordinary Mexicans and Americans, Peter Guardino offers a clearer picture than we have ever had of the brief, bloody war that redrew the map of North America. He shows how dramatically U.S. forces underestimated Mexicans’ patriotism, fierce resistance, and bitter resentment of American claims to national and racial superiority.

Description : The Mexican-American War was a conflict that took place between the United States and Mexico from 1846 to 1848. This conflict emerged as the result of the 1845 American annexation of the Republic of Texas, which had declared independence from Mexico a decade earlier. Through images, maps, fast facts, and sidebars, this book examines the ways history, geography, and culture contributed to this armed conflict, and considers the legacy of the war today.

Description : Establishing New Mexico as a U.S. territory was anything but bloodless. The Mexican-American War brought ferocious battles, brutal sieges, guerrilla warfare and scorched earth tactics. More than three hundred Mexican and American forces were killed or wounded in a single battle near Santa Fe. During the Taos Revolt, Governor Charles Bent was scalped and murdered in his home, and American forces fired cannons into a church where Pueblos and Mexicans sought refuge. Soldiers destroyed entire villages like Los Valles, killing or forcing residents to flee. Author Ray John de Aragón recounts these and other dramatic stories behind the birth of the Land of Enchantment.

Description : In Patriots, Prostitutes, and Spies, John M. Belohlavek tells the story of women on both sides of the Mexican-American War (1846-48) as they were propelled by the bloody conflict to adopt new roles and expand traditional ones. American women "back home" functioned as anti-war activists, pro-war supporters, and pioneering female journalists. Others moved west and established their own reputations for courage and determination in dusty border towns or bordellos. Women formed a critical component of the popular culture of the period, as trendy theatrical and musical performances drew audiences eager to witness tales of derring-do, while contemporary novels, in tales resplendent with heroism and the promise of love fulfilled, painted a romanticized picture of encounters between Yankee soldiers and fair Mexican senoritas. Belohlavek juxtaposes these romantic dreams with the reality in Mexico, which included sexual assault, women soldaderas marching with men to provide critical supportive services, and the challenges and courage of working women off the battlefield. In all, Belohlavek shows the critical roles played by women, real and imagined, on both sides of this controversial war of American imperial expansion.

Description : The Mexican American War was a two year long war that lasted from 1846 to 1848. It was fought between Mexico and America. The main reason for the war was the then American President James K. Polk who wanted to spread the boundaries of America. Although Polk instigated war there were many other reasons too. It was the first time that America used such a huge amphibious attack. The war ended with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo which was signed on February 2, 1848. United States had won the war and the 525,000 square miles of land was signed over to them. These lands include what is present day California, New Mexico, Arizona, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. Mexico also left all rights to Texas and Rio Grande was recognized as the American Southern boundary.
