|John Brown, Sr. [not to be confused with the abolitionist] was an important, early pioneer who explored and settled California, and a companion of Kit Carson, Alexander Godey, Joseph Bridger, and William and Charles Bent.
When the Civil War broke out there was heavy Southern sentiment in California, which would likely have seceded had the matter been put to vote. Brown was a Unionist and flew an American flag, for which he was verbally attacked. It was suggested that he take down the flag, but he indignantly refused. A noteworthy event in the small community of San Bernardino, schoolgirls -- companions of Brown's son, John Brown, Jr., sewed this flag for him in support of his father's position on the matter of secession.
