Oregon was very thankful. Who remembers the treaty now. I wonder if they even teach it in school now in OR?

It's very interesting to look at that period of time in U.S. history. Within about 8 years (1846-1854) the U.S acquired land by means of the Oregon Treaty, the Treaty of Hidalgo, and the Gadsden Purchase that are today the bulk of the western U.S.A. By today's standards I'm not sure it could be done. In those days there was a different attitude about things. In this day and age we'd need to start the process with an environmental impact report.... :-)

Down here in Cali the treaty of 1846 was never mentioned in school... well nothing much else was mentioned either. It was an interesting time. Polk's treaty led directly to the Pig War of 1859, another illustrious event in the history of the US and England!

Again our Cali schools don't even mention the Pig War! Now there was a war fought on the continental U.S. between two major nations and with peace brokered by a third nation... better yet no people were killed in the war... just one pig! We were the big winner, the US got the San Juan Islands and England (Canada) got Vancouver Island (which was already theirs).
