Californian Military Commander, Politician, and Rancher. Born into one of the most important and respected families in early Mexican California history, he held the highest military post as Commanding General in Alta California and at one time was the most powerful military man in California. In a life that spanned the Colonial, Mexican and American eras in California, he played an important part in the development of California as a state in the Union. He was instrumental in creating California's first Constitution in 1849 and subsequently served in the California State legislature. Vallejo, a city in California that he founded, is named for him.
