1836-01-02: Nicolas Gutierrez becomes Governor ad interim of Alta California

"[Mariano] Chico, in leaving California, turned over the command, civil and military to Lieutenant Colonel Nicolas Gutierrez, who became governor ad interim. The diputacion resented this, believing the control should have been left with them.

In 1836 the Californians of the north rose in revolt and headed by Juan Bautista Alvarado, a young Californian of marked ability, drove Gutierrez from the country."
