What happened to America after the Mexican-American War?
After winning the Mexican War (1846-48), the United States gained land that had previously been held by Mexico. The U.S. Senate (one of the two branches of Congress, the legislative body of the United States) ratified the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo on March 10, 1848. In the treaty Mexico gave up roughly half its territory, which included New Mexico and California, to the United States. Mexico also recognized the Rio Grande as its border with Texas. In addition, Mexico received payments in millions of dollars from the United States for the land the United States had received. Five years later, under the terms of the Gadsden Purchase, the U.S. purchased a small portion of land from Mexico for another $10,000,000, which was widely regarded as further compensation for the land lost in the war. The territory the U.S. gained is in present-day Arizona

AMERICA AFTER WWII At the end of the war, America was the strongest economy and had the strongest military in the world. After World War II, the Americans became much more involved in the world's affairs. As some did not have jobs, the government told all the people to just have babies. This …was after the end of the great depression. With that, it allowed more job and more schools to be made. Food was rationed out for families, just like gas and all the metal, tin and rubber was collected to help the war effort. hopefully this helped you! i used this for my project and it helped me a little (MORE)
It resulted from a sympathetic media and public that supported Cuban Independece and as the trigger point was the mysterious sinking of the USS Maine.
The US and the Soviets simply watched each other's moves. If we built a big nuclear powered warship, then they would build something to match it. It was a game of "up the ante" on each other.
Answer . If you are talking about South American Contentient, it should be peaceful place during WW2 with no threats as Communism did not exist there, neither does the Axis took the area in SA.. This is incorrect. Brazil definitely sided with the allies and had merchant vessels attacked by Nazi …U-Boats. As for the rest of the story, you should probably look elsewhere for better information.

California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico would probably NOT be part of the United States, had it not been for the Mexican War (1846-1848).
The American Civil War is the conflict between the Union and the Confederacy. In the beginning the armies went in motion because of the attack on Fort Sumter in April 1861. Soon it became a fight to preserve the Union while the Confederacy was fighting for Independence and the right to keep slavery …in the south. Much of the confederacy's dream of becoming independent was destroyed when Confederate General Robert E. Lee head of the Army of Northern Virginia and head of all confederate armies surrendered at Appomatox Court House in Virginia to General Grant head of the Army of the Potomic and commander of all Federal Forces.

It was a US victory in which Spain lost its New World Empire, Cuba became independent and the US became known as a world power. The Americans went to Spain to ask for Cuban independence, on behalf of Cuba. Spain rejected that. The United States sent in a ship, the USS Maine, which then exploded un…der mysterious circumstances. The media hyped it up and said Spain did it, but nobody is really sure about that. The war only lasted 10 weeks. The US sent infantry and cavalry to Cuba. The US Pacific Fleet sailed from China and destroyed the Spanish Fleet in Manila Bay. The US took Guantanamo Bay and sank the Spanish squadron when they tried to escape from Santiago de Cuba. (MORE)
The American Civil War (1861-1865), also known as the War Between the States (among other names), was a civil war in the United States of America. Eleven Southern slave states declared their secession from the United States and formed the Confederate States of America, also known as "the Confede…racy." Led by Jefferson Davis, the Confederacy fought against the United States (the Union), which was supported by all twenty free states (where slavery had been abolished) and by five slave states that became known as the border states.

It was a war. Therefore the assumption must be made that people fought, were wounded, shed blood and died. Such has always been the case when nations choose to go to war. Young men in the service of their country were forever scarred both physically and mentally, noncombatants suffered and died. The…re was death and destruction, pillage and plunder, acts of both heroism and cowardice were observed. The Mexican American War was not that much different from ancient warfare and not that far removed from the modern battlefield. Yellow Fever caused more deaths then armed conflict among the US forces, but there were ample ways to die. Such is the nature of War. (MORE)
The Mexican American War began in 1846 and ended in 1848. From 1846 to 1848 and ending with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
In Wilson's fourteen points he rallied for the need of a League ofNations and felt that without the nation being a part of thisleague, war would be inevitable in the nation's future. Ultimately,the League of Nations was formed but without the United States.
Mexico lost half of it's land. (The whole states of California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, as well as parts of Wyoming, Colorado, Oklahoma and Kansas).
It gave the US territories like Puerto Rico, Guantanamo Bay inCuba, and the Virgin Islands. It also made the USA as a world power and united the nationtogether, and diminished Spain's powers.
There is no doubt in anyone's mind that California, one of the world's strongest self- sufficient economies, if it was a separate country all by itself; was the main prize that changed the United States for the better.
People lost there homes.I know all this cause im Mexican/American So Ya!!! The Mexican Cession of Alta California and Nuevo Mexico.
the Americans got there freedom but also trouble farmers owed money to the government because the government asked them to borrow money to buy more seeds for food for the soldiers but then that the war was over there were no more soldiers to feed so they could not sell. then they take away there lan…d and throw the farmers into prison.

The North of Vietnam won the war. Also north Vietnam And I will answer all your questions. OK!!!!!!
Mexico City was captured and the war was ended with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
WHAT UP The Colonists won their independence from Britain, they won One War. then were like tatatatata we will win the we brought a robot and it said i shall kill you all that's how we won
cuba was fighting for independance from Spain, so the US felt it to be their duty to step in and step in and suppert cuba. the sinking of the Maine is the reason US went into war though, even though the Maine sank because of an internal combustion problem and not cus Spain sank it.
Before the war was declared the President had already issued orders to General Zachary Taylor to march to the Rio Grande and General Stephen W. Kearny to march to Santa Fe and a Naval Force to proceed to California.
The Mexican American War is filled with numerous incidents and sidebars that are worthy of study such as: John C. Fremont's life and times. The Saint Patrick's Battalion. The Los Ninos Heros. The pre war directives of President Polk. The Amphibious Operations at Veracruz. The bloodless cap…ture of Santa Fe. The long march by Kearny from Fort Leavenworth to Santa Fe to San Diego. The role of the young line officers who became noteable Civil War Generals. The political advancement of Zachary Taylor. Santa Anna's life and times. (MORE)
That possibility never entered the minds of politicians or the military leadership. It was a foregone conclusion at the outset that the Mexican population, industrial capacity, economy as well as the battlefield capability and leadership would be no match against the US. It is quite unlikely that ev…en the most optimistic military minds in Mexico wasted any time considering that option. It was only a matter of time. However, if Mexico had won, California would be part of Mexico or an independent nation. The US might not have absorbed Washington and Oregon, which might be part of Canada. Probably New Mexico, Arizona and parts of Colorado would be part of Mexico. The Texas border would be 100 mile further north and Texas might have eventually left the union and absorbed New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, etc. All pure speculation, of course, and others may reach different but equally valid conclusions.

The size of Mexico was cut in half. look if your going to answer a question do it right. mexico lost what is now Nevada,parts of colorado,New Mexico, and texas.
Guam and Puerto Rico are American Territories and Cuba and the Philippines are independent nations.
The Mexican War between the United States and Mexico began with a Mexican attack on American troops along the southern border of Texas on Apr. 25, 1846. By the clash between two patrolling armies called the Thornton Affair.

Mexico gained its Independence in 1821. Texas gained its Independence in 1836. The Mexican American War was declared on 13 May 1846 and ended in 1848. The US Civil War began in 1861 and ended in 1865. The Franco-Mexican War began on 8 December 1861 and ended on 21 June 1867.
too many misconceptions here. 1. America is a continent, not a nation. 2. If you mean the United States of America, it didn't exist until after the revolution. 3. Therefore the answer is 'Never'. A revolution is vastly different from an ordinary war. There can be no declaration, because there is no… separate state to make the declaration; only groups of citizens who rebel against the authority of their existing government. (MORE)
In the far west, the Mexican Army and a small number of Yaqui Indians attempted a Siege at San Jose del Cabo on Baja California that lasted for 23 days until relieved by troops put ashore from the USS Cyane. General Sterling Price lead a force of about 300 men of his Second Missouri Mounted Voluntee…rs to Chihuahua for the post Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo Battle of Santa Cruz de Rosales which was fought on 16 March 1848.

The civil war was different because in the civil war it was northern America fighting southern America. in other wars it was all of America fighting a different country. They were fighting because the South (or the Confederates) wanted to keep slavery in the US. The North ( or the union) was fightin…g to abolish slavery in the US. Of course, the North won. (MORE)
The Mexicans lost almost 1/4 of there original land that they earned from Spain in the Mexican revolution in 1821. They were not allowed citizenship immediately. Some "emigrated" into Mexico while others remained in the new US territories. However, those who did remain were relegated into a lower so…cial sphere like the Native Americans, Blacks and Mormons of the early 19th Century. Many US Congressmen and Senators of the period did not support the war simply because they did not want to create a nation that would not be prodominantly white, like Sen. John C. Calhoun of South Carolina. Calhoun once argued against a full conquest of Mexico saying, "Ours is the government of the white man." (Howe, What Hath God Wrought, pp. 798-99) (MORE)
Resolution of the Texas border dispute and a negotiated purchase of the Mexican states of Alta Caliornia and Nuevo Mexico.
The war officially started with the attack on the then US Territory of Hawaii at Pearl Harbor. The very next day the US Congress declared war on Japan. However, the attack did not happen in a vacuum as there were many events and policies that led up to that attack. The primary one was the lend/lease… agreement the United States had with the UK. The US provided goods and supplies to the UK and allied forces for a very cheap (and free if on loan) rate. This, of course, angered Japan (who, along with Germany and Italy, was at war with the UK and the allied forces) and ultimately led up to the invasion of Pearl Harbor as the US was no longer a neutral party.

The answer is no. American presidents John Tyler (term 1841-1845) and James K. Polk (term 1845-1849) wished to extend the US territories to the Pacific coast and consolidate what they saw as the "Manifest Destiny" of the country. US interests had expanded in California and its leaders sought to acqu…ire it by any means necessary. The American settlers in Texas had already split off from Mexico and established a republic since 1836. Its annexation as a US state in 1846 led to border conflicts that quickly escalated into war. Background to the war When Mexico won its independence from Spain in 1821, the territories it possessed included Mexico, most of Central America (Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica) as well as today's US States of California, Nevada, Utah, Texas and parts of Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and Wyoming. Due to the extremely low population for such territorial extension (estimated at only 12 million in 1824), Mexico relaxed its immigration policies and allowed American settlers to help populate the northern territories. The conditions to settle were simple: 1) to pledge allegiance to Mexico and 2) observe Mexican laws and customs. In 1830, these laws incorporated the banning of slavery. As many American settlers in such territories were slave owners, they looked for a pretext to secede from Mexican control. In 1835, Mexican President Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna took measures to transform Mexico from a Federal Republic to a Centralist Republic. This move prompted both Yucatan and Texas to secede from Mexico. Santa Anna's government invaded both regions. While Yucatan was regained, Texas defeated Santa Anna and his armies and became a separate republic in 1836. As is the case with today's mainland China and Taiwan, Mexico saw Texas as a rebellious province to be reincorporated at a later time -- preferably by diplomatic means, but by force if necessary. The Mexican government warned the United States that annexation would mean war. Texas Annexation By this time, US President John Tyler had learned of California and its riches. In a letter to Tyler, American Plenipotentiary Minister in Mexico, Waddy Thompson, Jr. wrote : "As to Texas I regard it as of very little value compared with California, the richest, the most beautiful and the healthiest country in the world... with the acquisition of Upper California we should have the same ascendancy on the Pacific... France and England both have had their eyes upon it." Tyler believed in Manifest Destiny, a term which meant the annexation of all North America into the United States. He didn't believe in Texas but coveted the other territories west of Louisiana, California being the "Crown Jewel". He eventually pushed for annexation of Texas, offering it admission to the Union on March 1, 1845. His successor, President James K. Polk, ratified the admission on December 29 of that year. These moves had much potential to lead to war with Mexico, and ultimately did so. The War Begins Faced with the likelihood that Texas would be lost forever, the Mexican government deposed its president and refused to negotiate with US envoy John Slidell, who had been sent to broker a purchase of the lands. When a US patrol was attacked between the Nueces and Rio Grande Rivers, the US declared war on Mexico, on May 13, 1846. But the first major battles had already taken place between May 3 and 9 at Fort Texas and at Brownsville on the Rio Grande. (MORE)
The soldiers that fought in the war would be killed by being tarred and featherd. George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjarmin Franklin (our four founding fathers) would have been hanged.
Cuba was granted independence, Guam and Puerto Rico became US Territories and the Philippine American War began.
If you live in California, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah or Nevada today, it is because of the Mexican American War.
Officially, since it was pronounced by former Mexican president Felipe Calderon (term: 2006-2012) on December 11, 2006. It has lasted until this day.
It defeated Mexico and settled the dispute with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. No countries were won or lost, but the Mexican Cession was a major chunk of land. Americans paid not only with money, but with civil war. Southeners prepared for war because why would northern soldiers come to fight …if the south is closer? The South sent its soldiers and they were trained for battle. The infamous Robert E. Lee won his expirience there. (MORE)
Essentially During the heat of the world war, the Axis Powers were the main pain to all super powers, and the common enemies of all Europe. Hitler wanted to make a point in history that he could do something even Napolean could not, that is to conquer Russia, then Britain and thus be the 1st ever… in history to conquer the whole of Europe which probably in his eyes included Russia. (Had he gone for London first instead of Moscow, he would most inevitably be the ruler of Europe!) That united all powers outside of the Axis. But as soon as the Axis were defeated, the Allies were swift to take dominance of Europe as the convenient new owner of that devastated continent and if Germany could be such a rising power only 10 years after bankruptcy since WWI, who knows how it could be an asset if she were to be acquired as part of the Allies' sphere of influence with Democracy as the lubricant for all its policies and values. Now Russia is the other rising Giant of the East. Like an awoken Bear , it is out from hibernation and now hungry for power, it needs a strategic foothold in Europe, with the pretext of reconstructing Germany, the Soviet Union fueled the division of Germany into the East and West Germany. So Hitler united these diametrically opposite powers from the East & West, but with the defeat of the Axis Powers these new emerging powers are now divided and battle lines drawn for sole supremacy of Europe and the world. Their initial display of power started in the Koreas, their playground for their skirmishes and subtle manifestation of supremacy over how has dominance yet not affecting their respective motherlands, then yet again in South East Asia, Vietnam to check on who is becoming the actual force to reckon with, and inadvertantly leading to the nuclear stock pile arm race ICBM technology in case it aggravated to the a showdown between Motherland Russia and the land of Free United States, and thus defined the escalation tension that etched in history the Cold war. The supposed calmness before a possible storm of WWIII. (MORE)
if you don't know this you know nothing on December 7th 1941 the Japanese attacked pearl harbor
Mostly near the east coast between New York and Georgia, extending west to what we now call the mid-west.
The question I think you're trying to ask is whether or not there were any battles on U.S. soil. The answer is yes, and no. The Imperial Japanese Navy did in fact invade a few small islands off the coast of Alaska, the main island being Attu island. The island was retaken by a task force of 300 nati…ve Alaskan volunteers in the U.S. army, which were later reinforced by a larger marine force on the other side of the island. Although the battle had no major effect on the battle in the Pacific, it was used as a very small naval base used for housing supplies. (MORE)
After the American revolutionary war George Washington was president and politics was set up and towns repaired from the war and America was being set
Slavery would still be in action and would be the Confederate States of America and our sixteenth president would have been Jefferson Davis.

No, Spain never occupied the US soil other than Florida which was purchased from Spain. The Spanish American war was over tariffs by Spain in Cuba that effected US interests.
The Revolution changed the Colonies from being run by England and it's King George, to being a free and independent nation ruled by a President (George Washington). The Revolution made us a free, separate nation, (that still had slaves).
