Did you know that in 1848 Mexico agreed to the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, ending the Mexican-American war? As part of this agreement, the United States paid Mexico $15 million dollars. In return Mexico gave the United States 529,000 square miles of land. This land eventually became all or part of 10 states: California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Texas, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. This was the third largest increase in territory or land in the history of the United States.
