3. MEXICO (Mexican-American War, 1846-1848)
Initially, a victorious Mexico would have reoccupied Texas, lost in 1836 when American settlers successfully rebelled against the Mexican government and established the Republic of Texas. Then the Mexican government intended to expel a majority of the Americans and outlaw slavery, which had been imported by these Southerners. Officials hoped to march beyond Texas and capture New Orleans and Mobile, with the idea that Louisiana and southern Alabama would ultimately be ceded to Mexico. After defeating the U.S., Mexican leaders would have weakened the American position further by aiding warring Indian tribes and supporting black slave revolts in the South.
