41. Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo – say Guadalupe-Hidalgo really quickly 10 times. So much fun. Mexico drops claims to Texas and US buys Mexican Cession for 18 million. 42. Gadsden Purchase 1853 – US buys area south of Mexican Cession for 10 million to build a transcontinental railroad. 43. Presidency of John Tyler – refuses to renew the Bank Charter, so his political party deserts him. He’s the president without a party. Also, he was a VP under Harrison, who died 4 weeks into president. He’s considered “His Accidency” for this reason. 44. Election of 1844 – major issue is expansion. Whigs run Henry Clay, and Democrats run James K. Polk, who runs on the platform of expansion. Polk is a “dark horse candidate”.

    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.
