comment Did any relevant Mexican authority ever acknowledge the secession of Texas before the start of the Mexican-American War?
In the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, Mexico acknowledged that their border ended at the Rio Grande. Whether this counts or not depends on what you're looking for, which you need to make clearer.

comment Why did Americans give up meat resembling animals?
The issue isn't whether the animal is whole, but rather how easy it is to use. An unplucked chicken is a lot of work to cook, but one that's plucked and gutted is easy to toss in the oven. A whole pig (or even a whole ham) is more meat than I've ever needed at once, but a smaller cut of pork I can handle. A whole trout needs to be gutted and scaled, but a fish filet is easy to cook. Etc.

comment How accurately could ancient astronomers find latitude and longitude?
Nice answer! Though Columbus' estimate was generally believed to be wrong, according to many sources, while Eratosthenes' estimate was probably much better.
