There is very little Americans really need to know about this: San Jacinto and The Treaty of Velasco. Google it. If Chicanos want to blame someone for losing Mexican holdings to the USA, YOU can lay all the blame at the feet of your beloved Generalissimo Lopez de Santa Anna, "Napoleon of the West." Get over it.
