The Mexican Revolution (1910-1920) started due to a group of people disappointed with the way Mexican President, Porfirio Díaz, was ruling (Beezly), but would later evolve into a civil war. In 1910, the Mexican people overthrew the corrupt and sclerotic dictatorship of Porfirio Díaz, who had ruled the country for decades (Kennicott). With the revolt against the government many social changes began to occur. Women had a role in started to have a level of importance in society, which was very uncommon for the time. (Macias).
After dealing with Mexico’s weak and tyrannical government, the Texians decided to write a declaration of independence and stated “The Mexican government has failed to establish any public system of education,”. The Mexicans had previously put demands that they must follow in order to buy the land, one being you must learn spanish but were never provided a way to learn spanish. Since they brought in a population that they couldn’t take care, they couldn’t provide them the tools to fulfill their demands so they were punished which is unfair. In the Warranted War with Mexico brochure, which is about Mexico’s past and the circumstances of the war, it essentially states that Mexico became a tyrannical nanny state so they enforced tyrannical laws on the Texians. If the laws were so important, why Mexico enforce the laws as soon the Texians moved into their newly purchased land.
Manifest destiny also affected the relationship with Mexico. Several factors led to the Mexican- American War in 1846. The factors were that the U.S citizens were moving into California and Mexico. Since there were many revolutions happening in Mexico throughout this time period the Mexican government was not able to protect the U.S citizens in this region. Another factor was that Mexico was upset that Texas declared independence from them and then the U. S annexed Texas in 1845.
the battle ended with forcing Huerta to resign and achieving victory for Villa.(Neth) The Mexican revolution of 1910 left a great impact on the country. The revolution was able to remove Diaz from his position, which was one of the main reasons why the revolution started in the first place. During the revolution, more artist and musicians showed, and their goal was ".. to redefine Mexico's national identity and dignify the struggles of everyday peoples. Nationalism formed a cultural core of the Mexican Revolution" (Green, Skidmore, and Smith
By 1824 King Louis XVIII was succeeded by his Brother Charles X whom also assumed absolute power and created new laws restricting the rights of the citizens. He attempted to overthrow the parliament when elections didn 't end in his favor, rid the citizens of the right to vote and rejected Frances constitution. It was these actions that caused Frances initial revolution in 1830, the people demanded more rights and made it so that Charles X would be the last Monarch with absolute power. However, 18 years later many of Frances citizens were still terribly unhappy with their government King Louis Philippe was extremely corrupt, many people were still unable to vote, a major recession made it so that many citizens were barely able to eat. Despite all of this, the revolution of 1848 in France didn 't gain much traction until King Louis Philippe refused to expand the industrial and baking franchises.
It was also because of the brutal ways that Spain was using to deal with the Cuban rebels. The U.S thus stepped in and helped Cuba gain it independence from the Spanish. The war involved a series of war and bloodshed both on the side of the U.S and Spain. The U.S thus won the war leading to the Spanish leaving Cuba.

These two treaties also partly caused the Civil War and affected the events around the war. When the United States purchased all the new land from Mexico, people weren’t sure whether to make the land slave or non slave land. Whenever the United States obtained a new piece of land citizens would have this debate. This was one of the major reasons for the Civil War .This problem occurred after the signing of both treaties. In addition to partly starting the Civil War in the United States, these two treaties also started civil war in Mexico.
In fact, a factor that contributed to a large extent to Castro’s rise to power can arguably be Batista’s government. Batista’s government was the main cause of instability in Cuba from 1952 up to 1st of January 1959. Batista seized power and created a dictatorship. Moreover, adding to this dictatorship, his government was also corrupted. This factor led to Castro’s rise to power as the Cubans did not want to live under such government which used violence as a mean to control the population.
This was one of the major factors that led to his demise, he was a weak leader and commander but also he was running a very undemocratic government and this was shown with the creation of the Duma. The first Duma was established after the defeat in the war to the Japanese in an attempt by the Tsar to retain power. The Tsar however did not expect when he offered free elections to the Duma that the electorates would begin to criticise him and demand change. This resulted in the collapse of the first Duma which showed that the people hadn’t a right to an opinion and nothing could be changed as long as Tsar Nicholas II was in charge. The Duma was never going to succeed in making change as it would be dissolved if
Before that, there had been earlier raids by the administration of President Wilson and he easily considered an expedition across the Mexican border. The secretary of war Newton Baker was ordered by Wilson to organize the expedition and pursue Villa. Wilson then tried to appease Carranza by asserting that the raid was conducted with a careful consideration of Mexico’s sovereignty. Nevertheless, the Mexican president considered Wilson’s raid as a violation of Mexico’s sovereignty and he therefore refused to assist the US in its expedition (US Department of State, 2009,
But the U.S and Mexico were in disagreement with the border of Texas and Mexico. The us said it was the Rio Grande, but Mexico said it was the Nueces River further north of the Rio Grand. The U.S tried to settle the dispute peacefully but the Mexican government got angered when the U.S offered the idea of the U.S buying the land from the Rio Grande to the Pacific Ocean, which led to the Mexican-American War. The Mexican-American War was a 2 year war from 1846 to 1858.
Although any of the treaties passed Parliament, but one that did was called the Olive Branch Petition. When the petition was brought to King George, he was very angered; moreover, the colonists believed that his taxes were unfair. He then declared soon after that all colonists to be traitors and should be put to death posthaste. Tensions had been growing for years between the two countries, but the King’s decision to list all colonists’ traitors angered them so much they decided to create their own kind of government. This scared Britain to the point of attempting
Texas and America plotted to overthrow the Mexican government through several underhanded ways that pinned the blame on Mexico. One of the several lies told was made by President Polk, leader of Texas. He lied to Congress by saying, “Mexico has passed the boundary of the United
