How Los Angeles became a state of America.
Los Angeles is in the state of California. Los
Angeles was incorporated as an American city on April 4, 1850. Los
Angeles was originally occupied by the Spanish people. They occupied
the land since the year 1769. The words Los Angeles means "The Lost
Angels." Los Angeles is a Spanish word.
The land of Los Angeles belonged to the Spanish starting from the year 1769. Many missions were built along the coast. California was ruled by Spain until 1822. Later, Mexico assumed power of California. After a two-year period of disagreement with Mexico beginning in 1846, the area came under U.S. control. In 1848 the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo made California a United States territory. Los Angeles was part of this history.
