Mexican American War

By: Evelyn Lucatero :/
The Mexican American War was the most important event in the Westward Expansion. If it weren't for this casualty America would have never fulfilled the dream of Manifest Destiny. Even though, some might say Americans provoked the Mexicans into war, nobody put a gun to the Mexicans and said shoot me or I'll kill you. Some newspapers protested the war since the very beginning, but the Washington Union wanted expansion. It was the Americans god-given rights to Manifest Destiny. Americans never planned for something this drastic to happen, we wanted to expand based on the idea of power not war. Many said the war was unconstitutional and that we should not kill mexicans on their own soil. It all happened because the Mexicans thought that our settling on their territory was rebellion when we really meant no harm. It was all Mexico had in mind, to blame their downfall on us, they were our aggressors.
