The Borderlands Overview
The territory that Mexico ceded to the United States at the end of the war is a unique region with its own diverse history and culture. The Borderlands refers to the area on both sides of the boundary between the two countries, including the present-day states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. It was an area where Mexican, Native American and Anglo-American cultures both clashed and blended. Struggles over land, legal rights and political power among various groups continued long after the U.S.-Mexican War ended. This area has become one of the most dynamic economic and politically important regions of the United States.
