RARE, EARLY PUEBLA BROADSIDE PRINTING OF THE GADSDEN PURCHASE AGREEMENT. The culmination of manifest destiny, the Gadsden Purchase, or La Venta de La Mesilla in Mexico, went into effect on June 30, 1854. For $10 million, the United States purchased from Mexico the territory which would become southern Arizona and southern New Mexico, filling out the continental borders of the country. Resolving some of the problems created by the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848 and further providing the territory for the Southern route of the transcontinental railroad, the Gadsden Purchase was the last major addition of land within the continental United States.
