Write about a narrow portion of your chosen person’s life that tells the listener a lot about who that person is. For example, if you wrote a corrido about Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, you might write about the day he proclaimed El Grito de Dolores (the Cry of Dolores), calling for Mexicans to rebel from Spain. Follow these guidelines to write your corrido: • The corrido typically has 4-line stanzas, (a block of lines separated by a space, similar to a poem) with 8 syllables on each line. • It usually has 36 lines (but it can have more or fewer).
40 The Southwest Under Mexican Rule One of the first changes that the new country of Mexico made after gaining independence from Spain was to abolish slavery. Even so, life for the Native Americans who worked at the missions and in the colonies did not change. During the 300 years that it ruled the lands, Spain had kept outsiders from traveling to Spanish territories. In contrast, the new Mexican government welcomed foreigners, including those from the newly formed United States of America. The Mexicans wanted the Americans to help them “claim” the land of the southwest, especially Texas, so that other countries would not claim it.
There were barracks for the soldiers who guarded the missions. The soldiers split their time between the presidios (forts built to guard against attacks) that were located nearby and keeping watch over the missions themselves. If there was trouble with the Indians working at the missions, the soldiers would administer whippings. A total of 21 missions were built along the coast of California in a 600-mile stretch from San Diego to Sonoma. Their locations were carefully planned to be a day’s horseback ride apart from each other.
