哥斯登购买计画 (Gadsden Purchase) 在墨西哥市正式签署

西元18531230日,美国驻墨西哥代表詹姆斯.哥斯登与墨西哥总统安东尼奥.罗培兹.圣塔.安那将军在墨西哥市签署「哥斯登购买计画」。这项条约解决了墨西哥与德州爱尔巴索 (El Paso) 以西的边界问题。美国以大约1千万美金的代价,取得了大约2 9千平方英里的土地,即现在的新墨西哥南部与亚利桑纳州等地。

Meeting in Mexico City on December 30, 1853, James Gadsden, U.S. Minister to Mexico, and General Antonio López de Santa Anna, president of Mexico, signed the Gadsden Purchase. The treaty settled the dispute over the exact location of the Mexican border west of El Paso, Texas, giving the U.S. claim to approximately 29,000 square miles of land in what is now southern New Mexico and Arizona, for the price of $10 million.
