The Wall of War

The Great wall of America between United States and Mexico established as a result of war between two countries and the war continued between two countries from May 1846 to February 1848. Due to this war a lot of differences created between two countries, which ultimately results in strategic ties in the region and of course in the establishment of wall. The results of this war was the establishment of wall which now commonly known as the great wall of America. The war started at that time because both countries never show any kind of patience and both wanted to fulfill their objectives.

The war started during the presidency of President Polk and due to different point of view on territory of California.

Between both countries different point of view originate because both wanted to seek their objectives. If United States before declaration of war waits and shows patience then the situation was never going to be so much worsted.

The Great wall of America was established after the war as the Mexico was almost conquered by America but President Polk never wanted to acquire Mexico.
