Abstract

The article discusses the concepts of masculinity and citizenship in the armed forces of Mexico and the U.S. during the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848. It examines the roles of gender and citizenship in the formation of the Mexican and American armed forces during the 19th century, the significance of gender and class in the military draft, and attempts by the Mexican and U.S. governments to expand their armies prior to the Mexican-American War.
