Tradewinds Vacations Looking At San Diego Of The Past
The history dates back thousands of years when the first people found their way to the shores we now know as San Diego. Once home to only the native tribes of Indians known as the Kumeyaay, it was in the early 1600’s that the Spanish first arrived along the coast and claimed the land for Spain.
By the mid 1800’s, the land known as San Diego would once again change hands with the Mexican American War, making not only San Diego but the surrounding Alta California region part of the United States and sending it on its way to the city we know today.
