At this point people are not just flooding in to Orgen.
In the Mexico War the Americans didi not get oll of the land they wanted. Mexico still owened some of south New Mexico, and Arizona. America didi not want another war so they paid 10mil for it from Mexico.
Eventaully 93,000 people arrive at Californa, becuse so much people from around the world had herd of it. Know the gold is starting to run out a little. But still tons of people were coming fro the gold.
At this point in time tons of people are flooding in Califrona. So the population eventaully gets to 80,000 settlers from around the world, but the population was still growing.
James Marshall was the first person to find gold in Californa. When news got out every body from around the world was racing to California. The poplulation was becoming so great that it became a state.
The treaty that ended the war was called the treaty ofGuadalpe Hidalgo. This gave the United states a ton of land south west, that used to be owned by Mexico. This gave a lot of people a chnce to start a new life their.
When the Oregon Territory was found both Great Britan and the United States. They made a Treaty that they would share the land for 10 years. It did not work out well with both of them so they later made a Treaty that Great Brian got the Territory in Canada.
The war started with conflicts between the United States and Mexico. To prepare for war the United States sent troops. Not all the United States agreed with the war.
This event took place after the Texas won the Texas revloution. Texas could not take care of its self so it joined the United States, so it could survive.
When the Oregon Territory was foud both Great Britan and United States wanted it. The United States wanted settlers to move their before Britan. The land their was cheap and desrted.
The Texans eventaully won the war with the Mexicans.The war kicked out the Mexican army, and it left Texas alone.
When Sants Ana herd about texas declaring independece he was super angry. . There would be no way that they coul be in a relationship like that after the war. .
Eventaully their were so many settlers in Texas that they out numbered Mexicans 10 to 1. The Mexicans starrted to get worrided about how many settlers their were. The Mexicans started to interfer with Texan traids. So the Texans got really mad and would stand up to their rights, and the texans started to fight.
Mexico was offering a lot of land in Texas and wanted United State settlers to move to Texas. Because the land their was deserted and their was only a couple of Mexican settlers. The land in Texas was very cheap and a lot of settlers moved their.
When the United States bought the Louisiana territory they had no idea what it was like their. So Tomas Jeferson sent out an expedition. The people on the expedition had three goales one was to find a NorthWest passege way. The seconed was to make frineds with the natives, and the thired was to see what the nature was like. The expedition was a sucsses.The expedition ended in1806
The United States wanted the the port of New Orlenes from the French. But when the United States offerd to buy the port ,the French offered them somthing better. The French offered the whole Louisiana territory for 15 mil. That was a really good deal considering that the United States offered 3mil for only the Port of New Orlenes.
