The last Mexican-American War
“An Unconstitutional War” – Abraham Lincoln
A slave holders war
Today is the anniversary of a war that Lincoln and Grant thought was unjust and Henry David Thoreau went to jail for protesting.
This is where it all began….
“An unconstitutional war” – Abraham Lincoln
“One of one of the most unjust wars ever waged” – Ulysses S. Grant
This is the war Henry David Thoreau went to jail over. It inspired him to write “Civil Disobedience” which had a big impact on Gandhi and Martin Luther King.
President James Polk…the guy who ran this operation?
While in the White House he and his wife ran a thriving business in slaves.
