HISTORIC EVENTS Of
) - '.V c
L’RPRISING it is to discover
how many important events
in history have occurred on
the Fourth of July.
On the fourth day of July,
1754. Col. George Washing
ton surrendered an army.
It was only a small army,
but a fort went with it- He
experienced on this occasion his first
defeat in war, at the hands of the
Although at that time only twenty
two years of age, he
had been placed in com
mand of a small body
of troops which was
marching toward Fort
Duquesne. At a point
on the Monongahela
river, less than forty
miles from his destina
tion, he heard of the ap
proach of a party of
French and Indians,
sent to intercept him
Accordingly, he fell
back to the Great
Meadows, fifty miles
from Cumberland, and
hastily erected a stock
ade, which he called
\\ ith the help of a
friendly Indian sachem.
Half King, he attacked
the French in their
camp at night, killing
their commander, Ju
monville, and taking a
number of prisoners.
It was the first blood
shed in the French and
A few days later Fort
Necessity was at

and French under De

honorable terms. This was on the
morning of July 4. He marched out
with his little army of 400 men. drums
beating and flags flving. and he and
his soldiers returned peaceably to
On the fourth day of July, 1846, the
independence of California was de
There was at that time in California
—as yet of course a part of Mexico—
about two hundred Americans, nearly
all of them men of exceptional vigor
of body and alertness of mind. Of
Mexicans there were 6,000, and the
aboriginal Indian population num
bered perhaps 200,000.
Capt. John C. Fremont had been
sent to California on an exploring ex
pedition a year earlier. He was on
his way to Oregon when he was over
taken by an officer sent from Wash
ington with a message ordering him
to wait and to co-operate witn the Pa
cific snuadron in case of hostilities
with Mexico. The message had been
iu writing, but the officer was obliged
to destroy it while crossing Mexican
territory, after committing it to mem
Accordingly Fremont returned to
California and took up his headquar
ters at Sutter’s Fort.
A few days later. June 14. a party
of fourteen Americans organized a
small revolution on their own ac
count, captured Sonoma and declared
war against Mexico Needing s. flag
and not daring to use that of the
Fnited States, they made one. not
out of an old lady’s petticoat, as has
sometimes been alleged, but from a
Mexican rebosa or scarf of un
bleached muslin a yard wide and five
feet long. Along the bottom they
sewed a strip of red flannel and in
the left hand corner they painted a
star in red ink. The middle of the
flag was occupied by a picture of a
grizzly bear, beneath which were the
words "California Republic.”
The temporary government thus set
up is known in history as the Bear
Flag Republic. Its banner now orna
ments the rooms of the Pioneer so
ciety in San Francisco. The grizzly
bear was rather crudely drawn, and
the Mexicans said it was a pig. call
ing the flag the pig flag.
Meanwhile news had come of the
outbreak of war along the Rio Grande
and on July 4 Fremont called a meet
ing at Sonoma which formally pro
claimed the independence of Cali
fornia. He was appointed governor

July 14, the British man of war Col

Seymour, arrived at Monterey to pro
claim British sovereignty. It was
thus only by a narrow chance that
England did not become the possessor
of California, which she had greatly

barks which had been sent by Sir
Walter Raleigh to discover and annex
the American continent north of
Florida arrived off the coast. Sailing
along for 120 miles, they entered the
mouth of a river and took formal pos
session of the country for the queen
of England, naming it Virginia. They
landed on Roanoke island, afterward
occupied by the first English settle
ment in the new world. This
colony, consisting of 110 persons sent
out in April, 1585, was abandoned in
less than a year, the settlers carrying
back with them to Europe the first to
bacco and the first potatoes, which
latter were planted experimentally
on Raleigh's estate not far from Cork,
On the fourth day of July. 1754,
Benjamin Franklin laid before the
commissioners of colonies, at Al
bany. a plan for a federal constitu
tion. aimed to accomplish a union for
defense against French encroachment.
It was adopted, but afterward was re
jected by some of the colonies and by
the British government. This was ex
actly twenty-two years before the
signing of the Declaration of Inde
pendence. Curiously enough, the doc
ument was rejected by the colonies
because it put too much power into
the hands of the king; and it was ve
toed in England because it gave too
much power to the assemblies of the
On the fourth day of July, 1770, um
brellas were first introduced into this
country, a shipment of them arriving
at the port of Baltimore. They were
generally regarded as an absurdity,
and it was considered that only fool
ish and efTemlnate persons could pos
sibly use them.
The massacre of Wyoming valley
occurred on July 4, 1776.
In the previous autumn two com
panies had been raised in the valley
and had been ordered to join General
Washington. Several stockaded forts
had been built during the summer,
but those left behind to guard them
were mostly old men.
A raiding force of tories. Canadians
and Indians, under Maj. John Butler,
a tory of Niagara, entered the valley
and set fire to some of the forts.
Forty Fort, three miles above Wilkes
Barre. had assembled a garrison of
300, largely old men and boys. This
force decided to march against the
invaders, which it did with disastrous
result Taken in flank, it was routed
and destroyed. But
ler reported taking
227 scalps and five
prisoners, the Eng
lish loss being two
white men killed and eight Indians
Incredrble deeds of cruelty and fe
rocity are said to have been commit
ted by the tories on this occasion,
and the whole valley was left a scene
of desolation. But it is not true that
women and children were massacred.
On the fourth day of July, 1780, con
tinental currency notes were worth
two cents on the dollar, and, it was
said, “a wagonload of paper money
was required to pay for a wagonload of
provisions.” Nothing could well give
a more vivid notion of the desperate
situation of the Revolutionary cause
at that period.
On the Fourth of July, 1S26, Thom
as Jefferson, third president of the
United States and author of the Dec
laration of Independence, died, aged
eighty-three. Just fifty years from the
date of that historic document On
the same day died John Adams, sec
ond president of the United States,

On the fourth day of July. 184S, the
treaty of peace with Mexico was pro
claimed at Washington. And on the
same day the cornerstone of the
Washington monument was laid with
great pomp and ceremony. Money for
building it had been subscribed by in
dividuals. but the sum thus obtained
proved so far inadequate that the
structure remained a mere stump,
only about one-third its present
height, until 1881. when congress ap
propriated the amount necessary for
There was a similar and even more
important ceremony in Washington

cornerstone the construction of the
two great white marble wings of the
capitol. There was an impressive
assemblage of dignitaries and an ora
tion was made by Daniel Webster,
then secretary of state. Of special in
terest was the presence of a few per
sons who had witnessed the laying of
the first cornerstone of the capitol
by Washington on the eighteenth day
of September, 1793.

Jack Cade plundered the city of Lon

Cade had fled from England for
some crime; but after serving in the
French wars he went back to that
country and settled in Kent under the
assumed name of Aylmer, marrying
a lady of good position. When the
men of Kent rose in rebellion, in
May, 1450, he led them. The rebels
made their way into London on July
S. A portion of the populace favored
them, but the opposing party gained
strength when Cade began to plunder
and kill. He retired to Southwark,
and was prevented from re-entering
the city after a fierce struggle on
London Bridge. Afterward he was
captured, and being severely wounded,
died in the cart which was conveying
him to London.
July 4, 1097, was the date of the
battle of Dorylaeum, a great victory
of the Crusaders over the Moslems
under Soliman, who had attacked
them on the march.
