Not all Americans supported the war with Mexico.  Some suspected Polk’s intentions on starting the   war.  Like the war with Mexico, people also suspected Bush’s intentions about our current war with   Iraq.  The South wanted war for the extension of slavery but the North objected to war because of the   loss of lives.  The United States captured New Mexico by using persuasion instead of force by convincing the Mexican   troops he meant to withdraw.  The army was led by General Stephen Kearny. Rebels in California arrested the Mexican commander and raised a crude flag that showed a grizzly bear,   drawn in blackberry juice.  This war was called the Bear Flag Revolt.  For a short time, California was   independent and was called the Republic of California.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
