Grades 9-13+
In this clip from Latino Americans, students will learn about the Mexican-American War. Until the mid 1800s, the region that is now the western United States including what we now know is Texas was part of Mexico. Inspired by the notion of Manifest Destiny, U.S. leaders tried to buy and later went to war over this expanse of land.
