History of the Celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Taking Possession of California free pdf Excerpt from History of the Celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Taking Possession of California: And Raising of the American Flag at Monterey, Cal At a regular meeting of the Associated Veterans of the Mexican War held at their hall on O'Farrell Street, San Francisco, Cal., on Thursday evening, March 14th, 1895, Major Edwin A. Sherman offered the following resolution: "Resolved, That the Associated Veterans of the Mexican War will celebrate the Fiftieth Anniversary of the taking possession of California and Raising of the American flag at Monterey by Commodore John Drake Sloat of the United States Navy on July 7th, 1846, the celebration to be held at that place on Tuesday, July 7th, 1896, and that a Committee of Arrangements of Three be appointed by the President to carry this resolution into effect." The resolution was unanimously adopted. The following named Comrades were appointed as the Committee of Arrangements: Major Edwin A. Sherman, Col. Joseph Stewart, and Col. Wellington C. Burnett, to which were also added ex officio President Major Sydney J. Loop and the Secretary, Capt. William L. Duncan. Subsequently, by reason of the continued absence of Comrade Wellington C. Burnett in the East, Comrade Charles Lange was appointed in his place. In September, 1895, Major Edwin A. Sherman, Chairman of the Committee of Arrangements, at his own expense paid a visit to the City of Washington- to have a personal interview with Hon. H. A. Herbert, Secretary of the Navy, and to secure, if possible, several vessels of war to aid in the Celebration at Monterey. The hearty cooperation of the Secretary of War was promised and telegraphed through to the Secretary of the Association and read at the Annual Banquet on September 14th, 1895, the 48th Anniversary of the triumphant entry of Gen. Winfield Scott and the U. S. army into the City of Mexico. The Sloat Monument Association of California, composed mainly of Veterans of the Mexican War and Pioneers also took the following action on February 8th, 1896: "On motion, it was unanimously resolved that this Association unite in the Celebration by the Associated Veterans of the Mexican War, of the 50th Anniversary of the hoisting of the American flag at Monterey on the 7th of July next, and with such other organizations as may there be present on that occasion. And if there is time and opportunity, to make provision for the laying of the Corner Stone of the base of the Monument on July 7th, 1896, by the Grand Lodge of Masons of California as a part of the Ceremonies to commemorate the raising of the American flag at Monterey by Commodore John D. Sloat of the U. S. Navy on July 7th, 1846." The Executive Committee of the Sloat Monument Association being represented by Vice Presidents Capt. Wm. L. Duncan, Col. Joseph Stewart, Secretary Major Edwin A. Sherman, Receiver Capt, Thomas G. Lambert and Rev. A. A. McAlister, U. S. N., the first three also being on the Committee of Arrangements of the Associated Veterans of the Mexican War. The delay in the passage of the bill in the U. S. Senate, making an appropriation of ten thousand dollars for the monument, being caused by the secret attack made by one George Edwards of the Bancroft History Company of San Francisco, upon the honored fame of Commodore Sloat by false representations and slander, had rendered it difficult to proceed with the preparations for holding the celebration, or for the laying of the corner stone of the elevated base of the monument. The passage of the bill by the Senate, however, gave encouragement to the Committees of Arrangements of the Mexican War and of the Sloat Monument Association. Lieut. J. Reynolds Landis, U. S. A., (aide de camp to General James H. Forsyth, U. S. A., ) having been appointed to select the location for the site of the Sloat Monument, in company with Capt. Gillett of the U.S. Engineers, Major Edwin A. Sherman, Secretary,
