Review on

On This Date In 1775 The Spanish ship San Carlos, commanded by Juan Manuel de Ayala, entered what would soon be called San Francisco Bay. Unnoticed by such early naval explorers as Sir Francis Drake and Sebastin Vizcano, the bay had been sighted by land during a Spanish scouting expedition six years earlier.
On This Date In 1858 Julia Archibald Holmes became the first woman on record to reach the summit of Pikes Peak (Colorado). She, her husband James Holmes, and two others began their trek on August 1. For the ascent, Julia Holmes wore what she called her American costume - a short dress, bloomers, moccasins, and a hat.
On This Date In 1858 After several unsuccessful attempts, the first telegraph line across the Atlantic Ocean was completed, a feat accomplished largely through the efforts of American merchant Cyrus West Field.
On This Date In 1861 An American Civil War skirmish, The Battle of Athens, took place in northeast Missouri near present Revere and southeast Iowa along the Des Moines River across from Croton. The Union victory has the distinction of being the most northerly of Civil War Battles fought west of the Mississippi, and also of being the only such battle fought along the Iowa border.
