Free and Sovereign State?[edit]

During the 1836 to 1846 Mexico was not a federal republic was central republic with providence and not states. California was territory under the Mexican Republic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MGTZM (talkcontribs) 17:34, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm wondering about this, too. Alvarado's 1836 revolt intended to achieve some sort of "free and sovereign" status but, as far as I can tell, it didn't happen. Alvarado himself was later officially appointed governor by Mexico City. Anyway, I tagged the section title, and hope a source will be provided. WCCasey (talk) 06:40, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Disputed[edit]

The August 12, 2014 edits by user 204.130.172.16 are disputed, so I'm placing a tag on the article until these questions are resolved. All of the changes in that edit are disputed and, one way or the other, sources need to be provided. WCCasey (talk) 19:20, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Also disputed is the section "Republic 1846-1850". The Bear Flag Revolt lasted less than a month and did not establish any kind of government before it was subsumed by the 1846-48 Mexican-American War. California was under US military occupation during the war, and remained under nominal military authority until statehood. WCCasey (talk) 05:55, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
