This paper explains that, to protest the American government's involvement in the Mexican War of 1846-1848, Henry David Thoreau refused to pay his taxes and was quickly thrown into prison as a result of his nonviolent act of civil disobedience. From prison, he wrote a political and philosophical tract called "Civil Disobedience" in defense of his radical actions. The paper contends that this work condemned the Mexican War as an intentional provocation on the part of the United States.
