Additional Details

The unratified treaty of November 20, 1843, signed by Mexico's foreign relations and finance ministers and the U.S.'s minister to Mexico Waddy Thompson, attempted to resolve the growing claims against Mexico for damage to the property and dignity of settlers in Texas. Tensions continued to heighten until the U.S. annexed Texas in 1845, helping to precipitate in the following year the Mexican-American War.
