A Wicked War: Polk, Clay, Lincoln & the 1846 U.S. Invasion of Mexico by Amy S. Greenberg
This publication tells the story of how America purposely drew Mexico into a war. The history of American involvement was told through the historical characters of James S. Polk, Abraham Lincoln, and Henry Clay. I also enjoyed reading about Nicholas Trist, who bravely defied President Polk to negotiate a treaty with the Mexican government.
