The U.S.-Mexican War, 1846-1848 (1998) 2 x DVD5
It began as a border dispute, but soon escalated into a 16-month conflict that transformed a continent. This critically acclaimed documentary series explores the events surrounding the conflict between two neighboring nations struggling for land, power and identity. In the war, Mexico lost almost half of its national territory -- the present Southwest from Texas to California -- to the United States. Although the war lasted only two years, its outcome not only transformed the boundaries of these neighboring countries, but it also shifted the balance of world powers and shaped the destinies of each nation. This program is the first to study both sides of the conflict, presenting a historical panorama filled with unforgettable characters such as Mexican President Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, General Zachary Taylor, and Winfield Scott.
Featuring interviews with prominent Mexican and American scholars and historians, the program exposes the little-known truth about the war that President Grant once referred to as "the most unjust ... ever waged by a stronger against a weaker nation".
