How damaging would such a Mexican insurgency have been to the U.S. forces stationed there?
Also, how would this have affected the 1848 U.S. elections?
Finally, if the Whigs still win in 1848 in this TL, do they offer to negotiate a better treaty for Mexico or do they--as U.S. President James K. Polk--insist that Mexico sell New Mexico and Alta California to the U.S.?
Any thoughts on all of this?
