The Mexican–American War, also known in the United States as the Mexican War, and in Mexico as la invasión estadounidense (the United States Invasion), la intervención norteamericana (the North American Intervention), or la guerra del 47 (the War of '47) was a military conflict fought between the United States and Mexico from 1846 to 1848, in the wake of the 1845 U.S. annexation of Texas. Mexico had not recognized the secession of Texas in 1836 and announced its intention to take back what it considered a rebel province.
