San Diego, California



The Fort Presidio of San Diego was established in 1769, along with a Franciscan mission. After Mexico's independence, the fort was abandoned and the town grew up below.

With the end of the Mexican-American war and the great influx of Americans during the gold rush of 1848, California was admitted to the United States in 1850. San Diego was incorporated as a city in 1850.
