Mexican War or Mexican-American War?

I see that the Wikipedia article that I used for the last several "doughboy" entries, referred to the war as the Mexican-American War.  All my life I was taught and read that it was the Mexican War.

I imagine it was changed because of the large numbers of Mexicans living in the United States these days.

But I will continue to call it the Mexican War.
