This article has a serious error, in the fact that it considers Alta California and Mexico different entities, although one was part of the other, that is, Alta California was a "state" or "department" inside Mexico, just as today, California is a "state" inside the U.S. The author might have meant Mexico City (where the central government was located) but since no references are provided, there's no sufficient evidence to change all references in that way. It could also be that he used a modern POV (which would not be considered NPOV according to wikipedia standards) and state that the people involved returned to "present-day" Mexico (most probably the states of Baja California or Sonora) to be closer to the central government. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:28, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
