José Castro becomes Governor of Alta California for the second time from November 5 to December 7, 1836 in opposition to Governor Juan Bautista Alvarado.


"Alvarado served as governor through a tumulteous period, having risen to power when Californios rejected central government and chose to secede from Mexico. Mexican officials negotiated the return of California and gave Alvarado the governorship. For a short period, Jose Castro formed a counter-government to Alvarado (November 5 to December 7, 1836)."
