The history of California
The influence of Mexico
Like almost all parts of the USA, the history of California is shaped by various cultural groups that have settled in this area again and again. Before the first European arrival in the 16th century, over 70 different Indian tribes lived in what is now California. With the beginning of the colonial era, however, the Spanish claimed Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo in 1542 and the English with Sir Francis Drake in 1579, claiming the beautiful area in western America. After all, California was part of Spanish colonial rule from 1769. Missionary sites were built under the Franciscan Junipero Serra: This was intended to convert the Indians to Christianity through Franciscan monks and to make known the ownership of the Pacific coast to the Spanish Crown. These mission sites have been preserved to this day and are an attractive sightseeing destination for many tourists. In addition to the mission sites, Europeans are also starting to build civil settlements and military fortifications. After Mexico’s independence in 1821, the area was claimed by the Mexicans and consequently became a Mexican province. This creates a hostility between Mexicans and Americans that lasted for several decades. After the Californians declared independence and the USA declared war on the Mexicans, they were forced to withdraw from California as well as from the other occupied states of Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.
Finally, in 1850, California became the 31st state to join the United States.
