the one on the Bottom is from the Civil War (April 12, 1861 – May 13, 1865), The one on the Top is almost sure to be from the Bear Flag Revolt. (During the `Bear Flag Revolt" in June 1846, a brief, but violent skirmish took place between a troop of American Bear Flaggers and a Mexican force gathered at Camilo Ynitia's adobe in Novato. Several men were wounded and one man was killed. The fight was later popularized as " The Battle of Olompali."), given to me by Charmain Burdell! The one on the bottom is found online. The one on the top will be displayed for public viewing soon! (stay tuned!) In the meantime, I'm keeping it safe!
