During the Mexican American War, on February 15, 1847, a council meeting at Santa Anita, after the flag of the United States was raised over San Jose del Cabo by forces of the U. S. Navy, declared Governor Francisco Palacios Miranda a traitor and named Maurico Castro Cota, of San Jose del Cabo, as his successor. Castro then attempted to raise the first company of volunteers to resist the Americans.
