Here we see a familiar landmark, The Pioneer Monument at Donner Memorial State Park. On June 6, 1918, a grand unveiling of the monument took place, complete with two governors and survivors of The Donner Party. The above photograph, from left to right shows Governor Emmett D. Boyle of Nevada, Martha J Patty (Reed) Lewis, Eliza P. Donner-Houghton, Frances E. Donner Wilder, and Governor Wm. D. Stevens of California.
What an amazing photograph! Three of the survivors have returned to the site of their travail, to witness this historic event. Notice the governor of Nevada holds The United States flag, while the Governor of California holds the state flag. The building of the monument is an interesting story in itself, and I hope to have a video up soon concerning its construction.
