Asked in Spanish Missions in California
What happened to the spanish missions under Mexican rule?
The missions no longer had the financial support of wealthy Spain. A brand new country, Mexico, didn't have the resources to keep most of the missions open, especially those in far northern California. Most missions were sold off or abandoned. This was referred to as secularization: taking a religious institution and making it secular.
Was the Alamo built when it was Mexican or Texas territory?

Why did the missions in California end?
I would say that for the large majority the missions of California ended due to the Westward Expansion (of America) which in turn weakened the influence and power of these missions who were put in place under the (Catholic) Spanish rule. Furthermore, when California was purchased by the United States these missions were under a new authority that did not have a national religion.

What are the spanish influences in the Philippines in terms of culture?
The Philippines was under Spanish rule for three centuries. There is Spanish and Mexican influence on Filipino culture, starting from the language, and following with religion, architecture and traditions. There are many names that come from Spanish, and names of cities and towns as well. Philippines is one of the two Asian countries that have a majority of people who identify themselves as Roman Catholic. Also, there are many Philippines dishes that come directly from Spanish and Mexican cuisine, such as Albondigas, Arroz a la Valenciana and Tamales.

The Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of Mexican General Ignacio Zaragoza. The Battle was important because 4,000 Mexican soldiers defeated a much better-equipped French army composed of 8,000 men that had not been defeated for almost 50 years.
