A Woman of the Ages: Juana Briones de Miranda and 19th Century California | Contemporary Historians at the Presidio | 2013
Juana Briones lived at the Presidio before establishing herself as one of the pioneer settlers of the Pueblo of Yerba Buena; she eventually sold her farm and moved to a rancho in the hills of Palo Alto.
Albert Camarillo, President of the Organization of American Historians discusses the life and times of Juana Briones in the San Francisco Bay Area from the 1820s through the 1880s and places her story within the changing contexts of California under three flags — Spain, Mexico, and the United States.
