shareanevada Enjoying an @Odd13Brewing #LoveMachine with Chief #CanInHand Contributor @Nevo08 beside the prospect slough of the #Sacramento #RiverDelta. In the 1800s the #SacramentoRiver fueled the #CaliforniaGoldRush carrying #goldminers on #steamboats up from #SanFrancisco. Later the #river would play a vital role in the construction of the #transcontinental #railroad. Not a bad spot to enjoy this Limited Release #Colorado #redsour #craftbeer #brewed in #scenic #Lafayette. #shareanevada 1w

professor_nyembo Widely known as Mammy Pleasant (born 19 August 1817 -4 January 1904), Mary Ellen Pleasant successfully attacked racial discrimination in the state of California.
Mammy Pleasant worked on the Underground Railroad across many states and then helped bring it to California during the Gold Rush Era.

After the Civil War she took her battles to the courts in the 1860s, and won several civil rights victories. Her victory in the lawsuit, Pleasant v. North Beach & Mission Railroad Company, outlawed segregation in San Francisco's public city streetcar in 1866. Her efforts earned her the title "Mother of the Civil Rights Movement" in California.

#Immigrantwhites had settled in the area since the #CaliforniaGoldRush, over the 10 years before the massacre. TheWiyot were a peaceful tribe that had never fought with #whitesettlers and had no reason to expect an attack.

#Thekillings followed two years of open aggression by a group of #localwhites against the residents of Indian Island, numerous editorials in the local newspapers, and the formation of volunteer militia groups. On the night of 26 February #1860, a small group of #whitemen crossed #HumboldtBay and to avoid drawing attention from nearby #Eurekaresidents, some of whom may not have condoned the killings, carried out the attack primarily with #hatchets, #clubs and #knives. Contrary to a commonly held view, #guns were also used to #killIndians, because some Eureka residents reported hearing shots that night, but knowledge of the attack was not widespread at the time

In #1850**, California #becameastate and priests of the #JesuitOrder took over the #MissionSantaClaradeAsís. Father John Nobili, S.J., was put in charge of the Mission. He began a college on the Mission site in 1851, which grew into #SantaClaraUniversity;it is the only mission to become part of a university, and it is also the oldest university in California. Throughout the history of the Mission, the bells have rung faithfully every evening, a promise made to #KingCharlesIII of Spain when he sent the original bells to the Mission in 1777. He asked that the bells be rung each evening at 8:30 in memory of those who had died.
