Polk caught word of the attack, he begged congress to declare war. With all of the American Congress, different battles raged on in both Mexico and the Republic of Texas. Fighting later stopped when both sides signed the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. The United States had to pay Mexico for all the physical damage caused during the war.
