ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the secularization of the missions of California. In 1821 New Spain gained its independence from Spain, eventually becoming the Republic of Mexico. To gain mission land, the Mexican government planned to pass laws to secularize the missions. Most of the Franciscan priests argued against secularization. The Mexican government realized that under the administrators the missions weren't producing the food and supplies still needed by many soldiers and settlers. In 1843 Mexican officials gave 12 of the missions, including San Gabriel Arcángel and San Buenaventura, back to the Franciscans.
