CONGRESS OF HISTORY ANNUAL CONFERENCE
DEFINING MOMENTS – 250 YEARS

MARCH 29/30, 2019  ~ 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. ~ UPSES Hall

Open to EVERYONE who loves history! Our region has an interesting past. While claimed by Spain in 1542 with Cabrillo’s exploration of the Pacific coast (João Rodrigues Cabrillo in Portuguese, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo in Spanish), it wasn’t until the 1769 Portola expedition that Spanish/European exploration and settlement began in what would become San Diego in the State of California. For good or bad, nothing would be the same. Since that defining moment 250 years ago, events and people (some famous, some little known) have dramatically influenced the course of the region. This conference explores the impacts, intended or not, of decisions that have brought us to where we are today.
