1846 · Mexican-American War

Age 1

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.

Age 18

Abraham Lincoln issues Emancipation Proclamation, declaring slaves in Confederate states to be free.
