Description:
John Marsh, 18th-century Massachusetts native, the son of English immigrants, is the first pioneer to settle in the great Central Valley. Marsh is a colorful man who influences people and events throughout his life and travels. The list of coincidence and "six-degrees of separation" connections of John Marsh with historic figures and places in United States history is surprising. His associations include: John Adams, Abraham Lincoln, John Fremont, Kit Carson, John Sutter, and Thomas Larkin. Western history lovers, California Emigrant Trail enthusiasts, and those seeking a real-life adventure story will enjoy this class. The true-life exploits of John Marsh are as absorbing as those of legendary bandits Joaquin Murrieta and Three-Finger Jack, or the fictionalized Don Diego de la Vega as Señor Zorro.
