History of Mexico

In the decades following initial independence Mexico was led by many presidents and governments and lost much of its northern territory in The Mexican-American war of 1846-1848. Benito Juarez initiated a series of reforms yet the French invasion of 1861 hindered his power as an Austrian took over the reigns as emperor, until Juarez’s supporters overthrew and assassinated Maximilian, at which point Juarez became Mexican president in 1867.

The next fifty years were a tumultuous and bloody time as Mexico struggled to define itself and mature as a fledgling independence.

Mexico eventually found its way and improved relations with the United States. Economic growth and vitality in the region is an ongoing process and Mexico now looks toward tourism as a way to provide wealth to a nation that wishes to provide its citizens with the opportunities to survive and remain employed within their own country.
