El Segundo de Febrero exhibit is a historical and educational exhibit that commemorates the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. The signing of the Treaty on February 2, 1848, ended the Mexico/U.S. War and began what has now been 168 years of peace between the two countries. The Guadalupe Hidalgo Treaty also established the new American southwest and the Mexican American Community.
