Regarding Mexico's Ratification of the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo. With the ratification of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo Mexico lost 55% of her territory and stopped an unjust war of aggression by the United States of America. The signing of the treaty was seen by many Mexicans as a way to retain sovereignty and avoid complete U.S. control over the entire country. Querétaro had been the site of the Mexican central government since the U.S. occupation of Mexico City since September 1847.
