Mexico severs diplomatic relations with United States. Beginning of Mexican-American War.
1846 · The Mexican-American War

An armed conflict between the US and Mexico followed the American annexation of the independent Republic of Texas. It started when President Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna sent troops to attack American Soldiers who were in Texas at the time. Twelve men were killed in this confrontation. When President James K. 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. In exchange, they received land which would end up becoming 9 different states.

Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ends Mexican-American War. Texan independence confirmed. United States annexes territories of Upper California and New Mexico.

Name Meaning

Spanish (Hernández) and Jewish (Sephardic): patronymic from the personal name Hernando ( see Fernando ). This surname also became established in southern Italy, mainly in Naples and Palermo, since the period of Spanish dominance there, and as a result of the expulsion of the Jews from Spain and Portugal at the end of the 15th century, many of whom moved to Italy.
