Which Turning Point is the Most Important?

Tuesday, Jan. 13th, 9pm

North America

I believe that the Mexican American war was the most important turning point, Because the U.S. gained a handful of that that we own to this day. And without all of those states things would be different. We wouldn't have 50 stars on the flag and other things like that.
