Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The California Republic, also called the Bear Flag Republic, is the name used for a revolt against Mexico proclaimed by California settlers on June 14, 1846, in Sonoma in the then-Mexican province of California. Declared during the Mexican-American War, the "republic" was a popular revolt; the participants never formed a government, and the republic was never recognized by any nation. The revolt lasted 26 days, at the end of which the U.S. Army took control of the area. It is most notable for creating the "Bear Flag," with insignia that appear on the modern state flag.show more
