UnCategorized 15,000 years ago, San Francisco was first inhabited by Ohlone Indians. Ohlone Indians lived and settled in the coastal that were found between Point Sur and the Bay of San Francisco. The original settlers flourished the region because of a plethora of flora and fauna–native plants, wildlife, and marine resources were the primary sources of food of the people and the entire community that was composed of villages. The Early Encounters in San Francisco Francis Drake in 1579 arrived in the community, particularly in Golden Hind. Drake’s crew and the natives of San Francisco lived together for five weeks as the ships of Drake were being repaired. Natives’ encounter with foreign people continued as the Spanish discovered an entrance to San Francisco Bay in 1769. In 1776, after less than a decade, the original colonizing party entered the community where they came across San Francisco’s Presidio and the Mission Dolores. Prior to Gold Rush of 1849, San Francisco was just a small settlement. Apparently every night, people cascaded around the so called gold fields and for nearly a short period of time the Gold Rush was inhabited by many people. Piers like the Barbary Coast started to prosper thereon. San Francisco as a Burgeoning Community People have had to realize about San Francisco’s resources apart from the famous gold fields. Later on, mercantilism enterprises and small industries like shipping paved their way especially to the newcomers. San Francisco was starting to attract various people that eventually became personalities. Some of which are Ambrose Bierce, Mark Twain, and Jack London. And in 1892 the eminent Sierra Club was started by John Muir. The burgeoning effect became even more highlighted when Emperor Norton assumed power and proclaimed his famous lines: "At the pre-emptory request of a large majority of the citizens of these United States, I Joshua Norton, formerly of Algoa Bay, Cape of Good Hope, and now for the last nine years and ten months past of San Francisco, California, declare and proclaim myself the Emperor of These United States." At the end of his power, government, and life in 1880 some 30,000 people joined his funeral. San Francisco of the Modern Times San Francisco at present times is now the fourth most populated city of California. Its power to attract different characters and newcomers still remains as its strength because it is already considered as one of the famous tourist attraction destination because of its historical landmarks that have as good history as the city itself. Its diversity in terms of population, culture, and milestones continue to become a part of ancient San Francisco or was recognized as the San Francisco 15,000 years ago. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
