About this Item
- A journey to, on and from the "golden shore,"
- Sue A. Pike Sanders (1842-1931) traveled by rail from Delavan, Illinois, as part of the state's delegation to the Grand Army of the Republic encampment at San Francisco in 1886. A journey to, on and from the "golden shore" (1887) describes that leisurely trip west with stops in Denver, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Salt Lake City, Reno, and Sacramento. Once in San Francisco, Sanders provides details of the program for the G.A.R. convention and its attendant parades and receptions, Bay excursion cruise, and tours of Chinatown. She makes side trips to Oakland, San José, Napa Valley, the geysers, and Yosemite. In Southern California, Sanders and her party visit Los Angeles to embark on their return journey, which takes them to Flagstaff and Albuquerque.
