Title
A journey to, on and from the "golden shore,"
Summary
Sue A. Pike Sanders (1842-1931) traveled by rail from Delavan, Illinois, as part of the state's delegation to the Grand Army of the Republic encampment at San Francisco in 1886.

Once in San Francisco, Sanders provides details of the program for the G.A.R. convention and its attendant parades and receptions, Bay excursion cruise, and tours of Chinatown.
