Answer:

The US acquired land through the Mexican Cession in 1848. The Gadsden Purchase was made in 1853 from Mexico as well.

Explanation:

The land acquired through the Mexican Cession is not typically referred to with a specific name. (Theoretically, the US's annexation of Texas in 1845 could also be thought of as land that the US acquired from Mexico.)
