Testimonios – Early California Through the Eyes of Women, 1815-1848

Presented by the Sonoma Valley Historical Society

Join us Thursday, March 14th, 2024 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM in Andrews Hall

In the 1870’s, prompted by General Mariano G. Vallejo, H.H. Bancroft began an oral history project with approximately sixty-two Californios. Of those Testimonios thirteen were women’s firsthand accounts from the days when California was part of Spain and Mexico. Having lived through the gold rush and seen their country change so drastically, these women understood the need to tell the full story of the people and the places that were their California.
