Mexican-American war of 1846

Mexican-American war of 1846. Look it up. Mexico was forced to sell that land to the U.S. because they lost the war. What do you think Manifest Destiny was about? That was the beginning of American Imperialism and expansion west. That part of Mexico was very sparsely populated anyway, but the Americans wanted the west coast. It was divide and conquer to compete with the European powers.
