瓜达卢佩伊达戈条约 (Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo) 在墨西哥市正式签署:184822 

 「在美利坚合众国与墨西哥共和国之间、他们各自的国家之间,领土之间、城市之间、乡镇之间,以及人民之家应该要有坚定且永远的和平,没有例外的地方或人民。」-- 瓜达卢佩伊达戈条约,1848年。

你知道美国西部有一大部分的土地本来都是属于墨西哥的吗?在1848年的22日,美国与墨西哥官员在墨西哥市开会,签署了瓜达卢佩伊达戈条约。这项协定使征战近两年的墨西哥战争得以退出,并且让美国增加了525000平方英里原属于墨西哥的领土,使美国西部的领土能够扩展到太平洋沿岸。美国新的领土范围包括了现在的亚利桑纳、加州、科罗拉多西部、内华达、新墨西哥、德州,以及犹他州。这项条约与1853年的哥斯登购买案,让美国的领土扩增为48个州。你知道是什么事情促成了这项条约的签署呢?


"There shall be firm and universal peace between the United States of America and the Mexican Republic, and between their respective Countries, territories, cities, towns and people, without exception of places or persons." -- Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, 1848

Did you know that a large portion of the Western United States used to be a part of Mexico? On February 2, 1848, U.S. and Mexican officials met in Mexico City to sign the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. The agreement brought an end to the Mexican War after nearly two years and extended the U.S. west to the Pacific Ocean with 525,000 square miles of former Mexican territory. The new American territory included present-day Arizona, California, western Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas and Utah. Along with the 1853 Gadsden Purchase, this treaty completed the expansion of the United States to 48 states. Do you know what events led to the signing of the treaty?
