The youth of America should be acquainted with the history, the development and the ideals of our nation. They should know under what conditions our nation had its birth; what problems have beset it; and how they have been solved. The should know something of our present problems, and such knowledge can be built only upon an understanding of the past. They should know the facts of our nation's history, of which they should be proud.
Not only is this true of our nation, but it is as true of our state and our immediate locality. It has been my purpose to gather together some of the interesting facts of Tuolumne County's history and present then in a form suitable for the use of high school pupils. I trust that all who read these pages will be inspired with an appreciation of and a greater reverence for the forefathers of Tuolumne County.
