The details of the War of 1812 between the United States of America and Mexico are well documented with accompanying references. However, even today as I write my "opinion" on this text, so - called scholars are attempting to rewrite history in a more accommodating and positive view of Mexico rather than the truth. In 2016, we're facing a massive immigration exodus across the southern US border , where young Mexicans are claiming that their taking back land that was stolen from them during the war, or tricked somehow. The youth have been told this most likely from their teachers, university professors in Mexico and maybe parents as well who only wish to see their children benefit a good life, rather than live in poverty in Mexican slums. It is taken a toll on our economic systems as it's draining our resources to provide and support our own infrastructure and legal citizens. The political crevice it has created dating back from the late 70's and 80's has only increased the political divide in the United States. Democrats leaning towards siding with the illegals, lesbian, gays, and transgenders and free welfare system to all who ask have caused havoc to almost another civil war. As time goes on I expect that history will only rewrite itself according to the issues at present. Not a trustworthy or accurate way to record the history of nations, and civilizations trying to coexist with each other. I would ask Wikipedia and others to continue to exhaust all efforts to keep the historic recording of all human events accurate as most humanely as possible.
