Skyler Sanford World History II: Test 2 Chapter 5: Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna : Politics of Brazil centered around  personality, not ideology (a system of ideas). He was a  Mexican  political  leader who greatly influenced early Mexican and Spanish  politics  and  government , first fighting against  independence  from  Spain , and then  becoming its chief  general  and  president  at various times over a  turbulent 40-year career. He was President of Mexico on eleven non- consecutive occasions over a period of 22 years.    The Monroe Doctrine:  This was a bearer established between the  western hemisphere and Europe. The British didn’t like the idea so they  completely dropped it. They didn’t want the Latin America’s to  recolonize because it would mean that all the ports would be closed to  the Brits and they would no longer be able to control a grow from Brazil.  is a  U.S. doctrine  which, on  December 2 1823 , proclaimed that  European  powers would no longer  colonize  or interfere with the affairs  of the newly independent nations of the  Americas . The United States  planned to stay neutral in wars between European powers and their  colonies. However, if later on, these types of wars were to occur in the  Americas, the  United States  would view such action as hostile. Manifest Destiny:  was the belief that the United States was destined to  expand from the  Atlantic  seaboard to the  Pacific Ocean ; it has also  been used to advocate for or justify other territorial acquisitions.  Advocates of Manifest Destiny believed that expansion was not only  good, but that it was obvious ("manifest") and certain (" destiny ").  Originally a political catch phrase of the 19th century, "Manifest Destiny"  eventually became a standard historical term, often used as a synonym  for the expansion of the United States across the North American  continent. This was so with Mexico (Santa Anna) attempting to expand

but the U.S. annexing Texas so they couldn’t do so. Mexican-American War:  was an armed military conflict between the  United States  and  Mexico  from 1846 to 1848 in the wake of the 1845  U.S.  annexation  of  Texas . Mexico did not recognize the  secession  and  subsequent military victory by Texas in 1836; it considered Texas a  rebel province. This war was result of the United States annexing  Texas. Eventually, after Mexico signed the Guadalupe-Hidalgo Treaty,  the U.S. occupied TONS of it’s land.
