LONG TERM GOAL for this Blog

Martha Alderson’s long-term goal for this blog and her school visits is to expand students’ understanding of California History. Her desire is to bring Commodore Stockton’s name recognition to the same level as John C. Fremont.

Stockton took part in nearly every major historical event during his lifetime = War of 1812, Algerian War, founding of Liberia, Raritan and Camden Canal, the first screw-propelled battleship for the US Navy, the Conquest of California, The Peace Conference. For California students, he provides the most exciting part of the California Conquest.

I love any opportunity to share my passion about this great American patriot.
