    Do you live in California or is this just of interest to you?

    I was born and grew up in California and left to enter the Army. Went back briefly for various tours at Fort Ord and the Presidio of Monterey and San Francisco. I guess that's the reason for my deep interest in the missions as they played such a huge role in the state's history. I also began to learn how far from the truth the history of the state as taught in the classrooms.

    As an aside, I've recently posted chapters 23, 24, and 25, the last one have some background of Los Angeles in 1830.

    At the moment, no. I haven't published it yet and won't for some time. If you'd care to look it over and comment, send me a private message and we can work something out.
