Why Was the Texas Annexation Important?

Answer

The Annexation of Texas was important for many reasons. Texas was annexed into the U.S. as the 38th state in 1845, affecting many important issues at the time. The Annexation of Texas was opposed by many northerners for fear of adding another slave state to the union, triggered the Mexican war from 1846-1848, and eventually resulted in Mexico being forced to give up half of its land in the Treaty of Hildalgo.
