"Re the Leg, Granjero, Spoken like a true Texan. United States Troups from Ilinois captured the leg in the Mexican-American War, not Texans in the Texas War of Independence. Yet Texas wants it "back".  Perhaps Texas could buy it…"

"Regarding the wooden leg, some Texans want it back too.  Assuming that Texas has more right to it, via their more personal history with the man."

"Fun (or not so fun) facts about Santa Anna. While living in exile in New York, he imported chicle hoping that it would be a substitute for rubber. An American aquantence friend bought some and invented Chewing Gum (Chicklets) He had a wooden leg…"

"Krista, you are correct about the treaty. The losers often get the short end. But the TofGH worked better than say... the Treaty of Versalles. Did not know that about Santa Anna."

"I fully realize that, Chris, I do (for the most part) know our history from both sides of the border.  But I was mentioning the T of G-H suggesting that the Mexicans did not have a whole lot agency.  Plus, Santa Anna ran off with every…"

"Granjero, I agree that Texans hold their history dear. And I agree that too many New Mexicans are, at best. unaware of their rich history. Hence one of the motovations behind my post. Overall the Compromise of 1850 failed in its goal of trying to…"

"This is a very interesting post, but I do have one little critique.     Umm...what makes you think that Mexico had any say in the negotiations for the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo?     Also, Granjero, no true New Mexican would…"

Granjero commented on Chris Isengard's blog post If it weren’t for Millard Fillmore you might be a Texan!
"I was born in Albuquerque and raised in Texas.  My ancestors on both sides come from Texas, some were original settlers before the war.   There is a history that Texans hold dear that I don't see in New Mexico.  Which is…"

"Ben, I am not familiar with Myrick's book. I'll look for source material for the statement. You are right about Ysleta/Isleta connection. I believe that during the Pueblo Revolt some Isleta People chose to go south with the Spanish and…"

Chris Isengard commented on Chris Isengard's blog post If it weren’t for Millard Fillmore you might be a Texan!
"The same Compromise of 1850 set the Southern border of New Mexico at the 32nd parallel, so that Texas could retain El Paso. The Boot heel of New Mexico was part of the Gadsten Purchase from Mexico in 1854 (after Millard left office). See the 6th…"

Millard Fillmore, 13th President of The United States (1850-1853) assumed the presidency upon the death of Zachery Taylor. He was the last President of the Whig Party. Most historians consider him the worst President in History, but not me. If it weren’t for Millard Fillmore, chances are, I would be a Texan! The Republic of Texas…See More
