    So what does manifest destiny have to do with the U.S. war with Mexico? What does Texas have to do with this decision?

  4. I know that Mexico lost a lot of land after the war and when Texas was annexated by the us they lost all their debt but was not an individual and their land was used as a border between Mexico and the us
