Long Description:
Taken from the website, "The second of the two markers, the "Beale - Carson Plaque," seen immediately above, stands at the foot of "Mule Hill." It depicts Lt. Beale and frontier scout Kit Carson arriving in San Diego to obtain relief for Kearny and his men, who were besieged by the Californios December 7-11, 1846. The hill is now known as "Mule Hill" because the Americans, low on food, had to eat their mules."
