Misspelled the word they meant and spelled a perfect description of themselves all in one.

8. Not so much...

 

There were some, though not a great many, people of Spanish extraction living in the area the US bought in the treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo the area was North of any area that the government in Mexico City made any attempt to territorially control. For the most part, they considered themselves to be Spanish and were antagaonistic to Mexican government before the Texas War for Independence.

Memebers of the US Army that participated in the Vera Cruz-Mexico City campaign opposed annexing all of Mexico, causing congress to buy (at the point of a sword) the part of Mexico that "didn't have any Mexicans living in it."

Under the terms of the treaty, they had to declare their intentions regarding citizenship within one year of it's ratification or they would automatically become US citizens as a result of living in annexed territory.

There were more peole indian tribes with their various languages in that area. Except for the Comanche, they seemed to get along with Americans, mostly. The troubles didn't really start until some racists in Colorado that were members of the territorial guard and wore union uniforms started attacking indian villages.

14. It was originally a Spanish Mission...

 

The name of the town where San Francisco was Yberra Buena, it had been a site of a Catholic mission to the local indians prior to that. The name was not changed until near the end of the Mexican American War to San Francisco.

Los Angeles is named for the Spanish Mission located there.

In total, the area ceded to the United States had a total of maybe 28,000 people, not counting the unknown but far more indigenous people that lived in the area. Considering the size of the area in question (equal to all of western Europe), that isn't very many.

16. California was settled by the Spaniards. The whole system of ranchos was Spanish.

California -- the Golden State -- was Spanish. There are Hispanics in California whose ancestry there predates the founding of the US.

18. A fact I do not deny.

 

Their descendants also speak English and are fully integrated into American society. I also stand by my statement that 28,000 people, of various backgrounds and cultures not only Spanish or Mexican, is not really a significant number when comparing the vastness of the area they were inhabiting. Spanish was not likely even the dominant language in that area (ceded under Guadulupe-Hidalgo), the nation of the Cheyenne was numerous and probably had more speakers there than there were spanish speakers.

12. I saw this in Pundit Kitchen

a few years ago.
The majority of posters swore up and down it was shopped.
I remain skeptical of that claim.
