Historical Reference Websites
War in California A website to explain its independence from Mexico and subsequent statehood. California had a very turbulent history as it became a state of the Union. Definitely worth reading to understand the California people as Texas was not the only republic to fight for independence from Mexico. Little of this is known but General Kearny and Com. Stockton were not fighting Mexicans, they were fighting Californians in defense of their country. Had California not become a state, California could have very easily become a British Commonwealth or Russian outpost.
