The Mexican American War

The Mexican American War, also known as the invasion of Mexico, began on April 25, 1846 and ended on February 3, 1848. The war started following the 1845 Annexation of Texas. This is because Mexico considered Texas part of their property. By the end of the war Mexico had lost roughly 1/3 of its property, including present day California, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada.
