On July 9, 1846 the Bear Flag was hauled down and the American Flag here raised in its place by Lieutenant Joseph W. Revere, U.S.A., who was sent to Sonoma from San Francisco by Commander John D. Montgomery of the U.S. Sloop of War "Portsmouth", following the raising of the American Flag at Monterey July 7, 1846 by Commodore John Drake Sloat.
