The missionary soldiers were one of the historical agents in the missionary-military settlement of the north of Baja California, but not only the specific individuals attached to both the Borders military command, dependent on the peninsular government but closely linked to Alta California, but also all the people around him, especially relatives and companions, who formed a society in arms from the end of the 18th century until 1845, which has been very little studied and even ignored by regional historiography. Thus, this paper is an approach of historical synthesis about this sociocultural and identity group in a specific region and period of time, but above all about the people who were the solid base on which the ranchera society of the nineteenth century will develop.
