Age 2

Indiana is the 19th state.
1844 · German Immigration to Texas

Age 30

Over 7,000 German immigrants arrived in Texas. Some of these new arrivals died in epidemics; those that survived ended up living in cities such as San Antonio, Galveston, and Houston. Other German settlers went to the Texas Hill Country and formed the western portion of the German Belt, where new towns were founded: New Braunfels and Fredericksburg.
1846 · Mexican-American War

Age 32

Known in the United States as the Mexican War. President Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna did not officially acknowledge the secession of Texas, and interpreted the US involvement with Texas as an invasion of borders. Mexican forces attacked American forces in an event called the Thornton Affair, prompting President James K. Polk to send a request for war to Congress. The war ended when the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed on February 2, 1848, which required the Mexican Cession of the northern territories and acceptance of the Rio Grande as the southern border of the United States. At the same time, the U.S. committed to pay Mexico $15 million for war damages and assumed roughly $3.25 million of their existing debt.
