The Mexican Cession was the result of a war caused by the Americans  attempting to gain Mexico's land. The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo  marked the peace. It was in 1848 that the United States gained 500,000  square miles, increasing the size of the U.S by 25%. The Senate  ratified the treaty in March of 1848. The states of California, Nevada,  Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, most of Arizona were formed from this land.
