The Mexican-American War is "substantially underrated," says historian Peter Guardino.

After annexing Texas in 1845, the United States' pursuit of territorial expansion led a military campaign south to Mexico. 

The conflict, which began in 1846 and ended by the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848, is also known under various other terms, including the "North American Intervention" –  a more common distinction in Mexico.
