Description:

The paper discusses how the Spanish expanded their empire into California in 1769, over two hundred years after their first exploration of the California coast, and they brought with them their European culture which included Catholic missions, presidios (forts protecting the missions), and small towns known as "pueblos". The paper relates that the "culture of the Spanish was markedly different" from the natives, which resulted in major conflict during Spain's attempt at the colonization of California. The paper describes how tensions ensued, and in 1808, the Mexican revolt began against Spanish rule and finally ended in 1821 with Mexican independence.
