Summary
When James K. Polk was elected president in 1844, the United States was locked in a bitter diplomatic struggle with Britain over the rich lands of the Oregon Territory. Texas, not yet part of the Union, was threatened by a more powerful Mexico. And the territories north and west of Texas-- what would become California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, and part of Colorado-- belonged to Mexico. When Polk relinquished office four years later, the country had grown by more than a third as all these lands were added
