"Mapa de los Estados Unidos de Mejico"

This 1848 map depicts the new boundaries between Mexico and the United States, according to the newly-signed Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. The treaty officially ended the Mexican War. It was signed on February 2, 1848, in the village of Guadalupe Hidalgo, just outside Mexico City. It confirmed U.S. claims to Texas, and set a new boundary at the Rio Grande. Mexico also agreed to cede California and New Mexico to the United States. This land included present-day California, Nevada, and Utah, and parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming. The United States had to give to Mexico $15 million. The treaty was ratified by the U.S. Senate on March 10, 1848, and by the Mexican Congress on May 25.
