In A.D. 1200 the Aztecs began moving into Central Meico from the north. The established a capitol know as Tenochtitlan. Tha Aztecs conquered other Indian peoples around them. They had one of the largest cities at the time. They accomplished much in their time.

Hernan Cortes, a Spanish solider, arrived in Mexico in 1519 with about 600 men. The conquistadores were unknown to America at the time. The natives had no resistence to disease, and when the first eidermic arrived, it weakened the power of the Aztec. In 1521, Cortes completed his conquest of the Aztecs and named the territory New Spain.

When Texas broke away from Mexico in 1845, it became a part of America. Shortly after, the United States and Mexico argued over the location of their common border. This conflict led to war in which Mexico lost about half of its territory. Americans know this conflict as the Mexican war. Mexicans usually refer to it as the War of the North American Invasion.

Agriculture became an important part of the Mexican colonial economy. The Indians did most of the hard physical labor on farms and in mines. Many ofthem died from disease and overwork. There, the Spainards brought enslaved slaves to Americas as another source of labor.
