Soldier, land-owner, and diplomat; General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo started life as the son of a Spanish soldier, and rose from cadet to Commandante of Monterey. From there he assumed command of the Presidio at Yerba Buena, and later was made General of all Northern Forces in California. Founder of Sonoma, Vallejo, and Benicia, Vallejo became the most influential Californian in the decade leading to the American conquest. Early on, General Vallejo clearly foresaw the fate of the country, and through his many acts of friendship to American immigrants he became the diplomatic bridge that joined two cultures.

"The Yankees are wonderful people. If they emigrated to hell itself, they would somehow manage to change the climate." - General Mariano Vallejo
