America frees Thousands of Mexicans

The mexican American war closes yet another chapter in the unmistakable American quest for freedom by welcoming thousands of new citizens.

Neither country will ever be the same, but looking back we understand even more clearly that this "freedom" truly carries a great price tag and as the years go by it only gets more expensive.
