    California Campaign

    The California Campaign (1846–1847), also known as the Conquest of California or Conquest of Alta California by the United States, was an early military campaign of the Mexican-American War that took place in the western part of Mexico's Alta-California Department, in the present-day state of California. On this day in 1847, U.S. Marines under the command of Captain Archibald Gillespies capture Los Angeles and raise the US. Flag over his old headquarters.

    Love the stars and bars.
