The Planting of the Cross free pdf Excerpt from The Planting of the Cross At the close of the sixth decade of the eighteenth century the Spanish Government began the colonization of the territory now embraced within the limits of the State of California. The movement, as was usual in Spanish settlements in the New World, consisted of a dual occupation- a community of monks and neophytes was established under the protection of a military garrison and the authority of an alcalde or governor. The first settlement was begun at San Diego (called Cosoy by the natives), July 16, 1769.A rude church was built and the foundations of Spanish rule were laid. Father Junipero Serra, a native of the island of Majorca, a Franciscan of apostolic zeal and considerable learning, and long in charge of the Missions in Lower California, with his Presidential seat at ancient Loreto, was made the first President of the new Mission- while Caspar de Portold, a knight of the cross in New Spain, became Governor. After the first community had suffered great hardships, the outposts of the Mission were extended to Monterey, and then to San Francisco. Slowly but steadily the intermediate ground was occupied. The Missions flourished and accumulated vast wealth in cattle, stores and cultivated fields, orchards and vineyards.
