The conflict[edit] Alta California, originally a province of New Spain, had been a territory under Mexican rule since 1822. As the native-born Californio population reached adulthood, many of them became impatient that the government of Mexico continued to choose Mexican-born governors. Following the Californio Juan Bautista Alvarado, the central government in 1842 appointed as governor Manuel Micheltorena, another non-Californio who proved very unpopular. By 1844, a revolt against him arose, culminating in the Battle of Providencia. In spite of an extensive artillery barrage[1] battle casualties were similarly slight as in the first Battle of Cahuenga Pass, being limited to one horse and one mule.[2] In the battle's wake, Micheltorena fled with his forces and ceded the governorship to Pío Pico, a Californio born at Mission San Gabriel Arcángel in San Gabriel. Pico's governorship was subsequently confirmed by the central government.
