Summary
  • In the wake of the Mexican-American War, competing narratives of religious conquest and reconquest were employed by Anglo American and ethnic Mexican Californians to make sense of their place in North America. These "invented traditions" had a profound impact on North American religious and ethnic relations. They served to bring elements of Catholic history within the Protestant fold of the United States' national history and also played an integral role in the emergence of the early Chicano/a movement.
