California's Gold: Emperor and the President
Sun, Jun 23rd from 7:30PM
Ide posted a proclamation declaring liberty for California settlers, which set the stage for California's statehood. In admiration of his bravery and leadership, his fellow Bear Flaggers appointed him President. From 1859 until his death in 1880, the eccentric Emperor Norton continued to issue proclamations, circulate his own currency and roam the streets of San Francisco dressed in a Civil War uniform. Residents and business owners humored the loveable character by paying him "taxes," providing him with meals and transportation, and saluting him. Join Huell as he looks back at the legacy of our Emperor and President, and pays tribute at both of their gravesites; permanent reminders of their contribution to California's Gold.
