That's because you need to use square brackets around x, like you 
always do for the argument of a function in Mathematica.

Plot[Cosh[x], {x, -1, 1}]

"When Kansas and Colorado have a quarrel over the water in the 
Arkansas River they don't call out the National Guard in each state 
and go to war over it. They bring a suit in the Supreme Court of the 
United States and abide by the decision. There isn't any reason in 
the world why we cannot do that internationally." --Harry S Truman
