Description
This flag stands as a group burial site of the victims of the 1872 earthquake that hit Lone Pine, California. The magnitude 7.8 quake leveled the town and killed 27 people. It was one of the largest earthquakes (so far) in California history and the quake was felt as far as Red Bluff in northern California. This historical landmark is located just south of Lone Pine, CA and millions of people pass by it on their way north. I never see anybody stopped in to visit. If you are heading through this small town check out and maybe say a prayer for these pioneers and indigenous people who lost their lives in March 149 years ago.
