Excellent points board members. Yes, Southern Ca. did push for secession.
Not as populous, but the southern half of New Mexico territory did create their own governing body since they felt they were not being represented.
The point about mineral wealth is well taken. Both California and Colorado were discovering and producing gold and silver as well as parts of the New Mexico territory.
 A couple of other points, before I go, that I would like to see addressed concern the California Ports, as far as cotton trade goes, and the Southern diplomatic missions to Mexico during this period. Any thoughts?

Sorry, gotta run,
