Happy Admission Day #3 -- September 9, 2012

We don't hear much about Admission Day anymore. Today is the 162nd anniversary of California being welcomed into the Union.  I took this photograph of Douglas Tilden's Native Sons Monument, which commemorates Admission Day, on 26-September-2007.  It features a quote from Senator William H Seward: "The unity of our empire hangs on the decision of this day."  Seward later served as Abraham Lincoln's Secretary of State. 
The Giants won 2 out of 3 in a weekend series against the Dodgers.  The Giants lead the second-place Dodgers by 5 1/2 games.
