Unbiased History
Joaquin Hawkins | Currently in Guadalajara, Mexico | 06/18/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD on the history of the Mexican - American War is a not a candy-coated view of Old Glory waving over Chapultepec Castle and occupied Mexico City. It truly depicts how President Polk and his "Manifest Destiny" beliefs orchestrated this war with Mexico, simply to justify the land grab, as to the "Victors go the Spoils." I suppose some of my fellow Americans will object to some of the enlightenment, after all Davey Crocket and all those heroes at the Alamo were massacred by the tyrant Santa Ana. But, being able to be open minded, see truth as it was, this DVD is very revelatory. It helps too to understand the psyche of the Mexican peopl today, perpetual victims in history to foeigners. Yes, The USA has had its own part in this. Watch, and wash away any bias"
