ABSTRACT
While the Spanish missions in California were expanding, the colonists of New Spain were growing restless. They no longer wanted to be ruled by a king in faraway Spain. The missions, with their churches and friars, had been Spain's project. San Francisco Solano, which opened in 1823, was the last of the California missions. In 1834, the government of Mexico began to take over the missions. By law, the Indians were supposed to get half of the mission lands and cattle. Americans wanted some of the free land, too. That year, Texas went to war with Mexico over land rights.
