Icon7 California a Mexican Penal Colony?


I recently re-acquainted myself with Herbert Howe Bancroft, an 19th century historian who prodigiously wrote on American Indians, as well as histories of some states.


I found and bookmarked three tomes reviewing activities in California from 1825 to 1848. Awesome. Only problem is that he gives short-shrift to the friars who missions kept the civilian and military population fed and clothed.


Anyhow, I've only made it through chapter XIII and some of what I've learned amazes me. If you're into that stuff, check out my latest blog post at my signature!


Convicts rebel against the Mexican governor seeking California as separate from Mexico!

Just had a guest post The Spanish Missions on the California Peninsula

David Kier has an amazing collection of photos, maps and documents on the subject and I posted links to his site on my blog.

Thank you for the link, longknife. That was interesting reading from Kier. The link to the oldmissions.com was useful too.
