Drawing on a rich, interdisciplinary collection of U.S. and Mexican sources, this volume explores the foundational conflict that redrew the boundaries of the North American continent in the Nineteenth Century. Among the many period texts included here are letters from U.S. and Mexican soldiers, governmental proclamations, songs, caricatures, poetry, and newspaper articles. A general introduction, chronology of the War, maps, and suggestions for further reading are also included.
