 My great-grandfather came to California, when he joined Stevenson's Regiment.  He also served in the Civil War, while stationed at the Presidio in San Francisco.

His name is listed in this book and we have his flag, medal, several buttons and a stick pin.

In between wars, he mined, and this last photo is of some of his belongings from that time period.
