    Only the small part of Arizona included in the Gadsden Purchase was bought from Mexico. The rest was conquered, or in the case of Texas annexed

      Incorrect. The Gadsden Purchase included territory in what would become the state of New Mexico, not only Arizona.

    None. Though the US did pay for territory acquired in the Gadsden Purchase which later became parts of Arizona and New Mexico.
