National Geographic Timeline of American History: Hispanic America covers the fascinating timeline of Hispanic Americans in both North America and South America, tracing their history from early Spanish influence on the continent through modern immigration and into the present. Information covered includes a discussion of the Spanish vice-royalties, background on Peru and Mexico, a feature on Simon Bolivar, the expansion into California, and the history of the California missions. The history of the Mexican War is explored from the Hispanic perspective, broadening the conventional view of that key period in history. The Spanish-American War is also covered in detail. Modern times events and issues include a look at land claims, influence from Puerto Rico and Cuba, and how Hispanics have become the largest minority. The What If? section considers how history might have unfolded differently if California had remained part of Mexico.
