Today at the barracks watch a video about Sonoma Plaza history, the Mission, General Vallejo, and the Bear Flag Revolution. There's also a replica of the original Bear Flag on display (the original was destroyed during the 1906 Great Earthquake and Fires in San Francisco). Rumor has it that the red stripe at the bottom of the first flag was material taken from a woman's petticoat.
Inside the Barracks you'll find a Gift Store with, among other things, a variety of books on Native Americans, Mexican history, and the history of the California Missions. See more at Discover Northern California: http://tinyurl.com/6xqjkr5
