“Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples. The British and French, the Dutch and Spanish, to Mexicans, to countless Indian tribes.”
RALEIGH— So saith the man from the 57th State in the Union.
The land modernly known as Mexico was first visited by Europeans in 1517. Spaniards actually. Mexico declared Independence in 1820. It was recognized as Mexico a year later in 1821.
The United States of America was formed in 1776.
Apparently Mexicans existed long before Mexico was even an idea.
