Two U.S. soldiers in a remote area of Texas were confronted by Mexican soldiers who thought the Americans had crossed into Mexico, U.S. officials said Tuesday. The Mexican troops reportedly removed a weapon from the American soldier who was armed.
U.S. Northern Command, which manages military support for Customs and Border Protection, said the Americans were in a CBP vehicle in a remote area in the vicinity of Clint, Texas.
The incident happened on April 13 and was first reported by Newsweek, which said one of the Mexican military members removed a service pistol from the hip of one of the Americans and threw it inside the U.S. government vehicle.
A Northern Command statement to The Associated Press on Tuesday said an inquiry by the Defense Department and CBP revealed that the Mexican military members believed they were on Mexican territory at the time they confronted the Americans. The incident happened on a slice of U.S. territory south of the border wall but north of the actual border.
“After a brief discussion between the soldiers from the two nations, the Mexican military members departed the area,” Northern Command said. “The U.S. soldiers immediately contacted CBP, who responded quickly. Throughout the incident, the U.S. soldiers followed all established procedures and protocols.” It said an inquiry is ongoing.
The first entourage in Mexican history were people who migrated to the New World from Asia, crossing the land bridge in the Bering Strait at some time during the Ice Age.
Then, they traveled south through Alaska, Canada, the United States and into what is today, Mexico. different tribes settled in different regions of Mexico. This happened more than 40,000 years ago.
Mexico’s ancient culture helped shape the country as it is today. There is no direct succession from one group to another.
Throughout Mexican history many cultures existed at the same time in various parts of Mexico and Central America (Mesoamerica), among them, the Olmecs, the Teotihuacans, the Mayans, the Mixtecs, the Zapotecs, the Tarascans, the Totonacs and the Aztecs. B. Pre-classical Olmec period lived in the humid lowlands of southern Veracruz and Tabasco along the Gulf of Mexico. The word Olmec means “dwellers on rubber ground”.
The Olmecs are large sculptors, whether figures of small jade carvings or giant basalt monuments. They consider jade to be a precious stone. According to Mexican history, they are the most famous carvings of their large human heads made of stones, some weighing as much as 50 tons, which they make without metal tools. The largest head found was 3.40 meters (10 feet).
In 1994, 17 of the colossal heads had been found by Olmec carrying these large stones as far as 100 km (60 miles). To this day, no one knows how they do this. Olmec invented the calendar and influenced later cultures such as the Aztecs, Mixtecs, Totonacs and Mayans who played a major role in Mexican history. C.
The Teotihuacan Classical Period is an ancient Mexican city built around 200 AD, in the Valley of Mexico. Teotihuacan means “The City of the Gods”. Teotihuacan means “City of the Gods”. It is a trip about an hour north of now Mexico City. This is believed to be the place where the gods were created, and many people came on pilgrimage to visit it.
Before Spain arrived, Teotihuacan had around 200,000 inhabitants, making it the largest city in Mesoamerica. The Teotihuacans built their temples, monuments, streets and town squares based on their observations on astronomy. This must be one of the most amazing archeological sites in all of America.
Even today you can still walk along the main road, called Avenue of the Dead, climb the Pyramid of the Moon, then overcome the Pyramid higher than the Sun, which compares with the size of the Egyptian pyramid. When people think of Mexican history they usually think of the Maya Empire.
Maya is often considered the crown jewel of pre-Colombian culture. They developed the mathematical concept from Zero and produced a calendar that allowed their priests to predict eclipses and plot solar system movements. Maya also participated enthusiastically in brutal games, human sacrifice and bloodshed rituals, which they believed helped them to communicate with the Gods.
The great Maya Empire, first centered in Guatemala and the state of Chiapas, spread north to the Yucatan Peninsula in the seventeenth century. D. The Arrival of the Spaniards to Mexico The Aztec Empire was often the second thing people thought of when they talked about Mexican history. The Aztecs are warriors who came from a place called Aztlán, thought to be in the north-west region of Mexico.
They left Aztlán in the 12th century, settling in various places before finally, in the 13th century, arriving in the Valley of Mexico. Encouraged by the prophetic edict, they moved from place to place to find a location where they would see an eagle perched on the cactus pad, clutching a snake in its beak. According to legend, this place is an island in the middle of Lake Texcoco, in the Valley of Mexico.
The Aztecs soon dominated other tribes and villages, and in 1325 founded Tenochtitlan, which later became Mexico City.
