Treaty of CahuengaThe Treaty of Cahuenga ended the fighting of the Mexican-American War in California. The treaty was signed by Lieutenant-Colonel John C. Fremont and General Andres Pico on January 13, 1847 on the kitchen table of Tomas Feliz's six-room adobe house. The following Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848 formally ceded California to the United States and fixed the disputed border in Texas, ending hostilities with Mexico.
