Submitted by the Event Organizer
Daly City History Guild Museum & Archive president Mark Weinberger will lead a tour of the famous but often overlooked Broderick-Terry Duel Site located in the tiny park of the same name situated near Lake Merced and on the San Francisco-Daly City border. The tour will take place within this small park which abuts the San Francisco Golf Club. Visitors will view a plaque, State Landmark Number 19, and granite shafts which tell of the notorious duel that took place on September 13, 1859. A story will unfold about how former CA Supreme Court Chief Justice David S. Terry mortally wounded U.S. Senator David C. Broderick in part over the issue of slavery. This is considered to have been the last duel in California history. After the tour concludes, participants are invited to visit the Daly City History Museum located a short distance away where light refreshments will be served. Tour will begin just outside the park entrance on El Portal Way. Street parking is plentiful.
