Preserving the Pioneer Spirit

Mormon Battalion Ship Brooklyn Gold Rush Settlements
This website is dedicated to those stalwart early California pioneers of the late 1840’s and early 1850’s. It is intended to give proper recognition to the contributions made by them in settling and developing early California. It is hoped that this material will be a source of accurate historical information for teachers, Living History re-enactors, and to educate the public concerning their accomplishments.
