On July 7, 1846, John Montgomery sailed the USS Portsmouth into Yerba Buena Cove and planted an American Flag on San Francisco's Town Square. He proclaimed all of California was now the territory of the United States. A pretty nice 70th birthday present even if was a little belated and impossible to wrap.
FOOT! Fun Walking Tour’s Walking on Water will show you the modern day location of the original site of Yerba Buena Cove and the large portion of the bay that was made into land for the soon to be rapid expansion of the city of St. Francis. There are many public spaces that were carved from the water and celebrate the people and events that reshaped not only the waterfront but also the look and feel of San Francisco.
