The timeline highlights the important dates, significant events and interesting facts on the mission era in California, covering the period from 1758 until 1853. The timeline is organized into nine eras, starting with the Founding Era (1768 to 1770) and ending with a period where there was a complex struggle for control of California (1746-1853). The timeline also includes an 1823 map of Alta California, showing the location of each of the missions, presidios and pueblos (free standing towns). Another panel summarizes the fate of each of 21 missions after secularization.

The California Missions' Timeline (1768-1853) begins with the 1768 planning for the land and sea-based expedition to settle Alta California and covers all of the key events through 1853, when Archbishop Alemany filed a petition for the return of former mission lands. To make the story more visually interesting it includes eleven drawings of key historical events, colorized versions of drawings done by A.B. Dodge and Alexander Harmer. The timeline also includes a map showing the location of all of the missions, presidios and pueblos, and a special page detailing what happened to each of the missions after secularization. The timeline measures 6.5 inches wide by 7.25 inches tall and unfolds to six panels, printed on both sides. The timeline retails for $8.95. A poster version, California History - The Mission Era, developed for classroom and library use, measures 40 inches wide by 27 inches tall. It is laminated on both sides. --Correo (Bulletin of California Mission Studies Assoc.) 12-09
