Battle of Providencia
It was a battle rooted in the fact that Mexico was choosing Mexicans to be Governors of Alta California instead of Californians. In 1842, the Mexican government appointed Manuel Micheltorena as governor. The native-born Californios did not like him and, by 1844, a revolt began. After fighting near Los Angeles, Micheltorena finally decided to give up his fight. He withdrew his forces and Pío Pico became governor.
