CONGRATULATIONS TO HISTORIC CAMPO DE CAHUENGA ON ITS NEW WEBSITE
CAMPO DE CAHEUNGA LAUNCHES ITS NEW WEBSITE
At long last Campo de Caheunga, the most important historic site for Americans west of the Mississippi, has a new and promising website. The address of the site is: www.campodecahuenga.com
The Museum Community, working to bring about a great Museum of history and culture for the San Fernando Valley, recognizes how exceptionally important Campo's location is to our Nation, State and City. We believe that the place where America completed its "manifest destiny" to spread from "sea to shining sea" is our collective duty to preserve and cherish. It was at Campo de Cahuenga that Californians became California-Americans and where our Mexican population became Mexican-Americans. Time and intermarriage will gradually sweep away our designation as hyphenated Americans, but Campo de Cahuenga will always be the sacred site where the words in Katharine Lee Bates song written in1893 became the ultimate prayer for our country.
America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!
