The Aftermath of War
The legacy of any important historical event must be measured from many viewpoints. The discussion of the legacy is an on-going process because history, after all, is never final, as succeeding generations confront for themselves the forces and ideas that shape our lives.
The issues raised during the U.S.-Mexican War are ones that are still valid today: the contradiction between stated ideals and actual practice; the distinction between a "just" and an "unjust" war; the ways citizenship is defined and identified in a multicultural society; and the challenges in building progressive and democratic nations.
