Our 1846 war with Mexico was a blatant land grab provoked by President James Polk, and while it secured the entire Southwest and California for America, it also exacerbated regional tensions over slavery, creted the first significant antiwar movement in America, and helped lead the nation into civil war. 'A wicked war' is the definitive history of this conflict that turned America into a continental power.
