Hitchcock explains, “He seems to have lost all respect for Mexican rights and is willing to be an instrument of Mr. Polk for pushing our boundary as far west as possible,” (Zinn 150). The feelings for this burst of expansion were varied; some believed it unnecessary to different degrees, while others strongly favored the extra land. In fact, a new attitude was developed during this time, the one of “manifest destiny”. Manifest destiny was a term first coined by John O’Sullivan, editor of the Democratic Review, in 1845. He said it was “Our manifest destiny to overspread the continent allotted by Providence for the free development of our yearly multiplying millions,” (Zinn 151).
In 1523, just two years after the Aztec capital of Tenochitlan fell to Hernán Cortés and his Conquistadors, the first Roman Catholic missionaries arrived to begin the religious conquest of Mexico. Fray Bernadino de Sahagún and his fellow Franciscan brothers immediately immersed themselves in the intensive study of indigenous tongues along with the history, customs and religious practices of the Mexicas, whom they called Aztecs.
