#691 Sarcophagus of Thomas Starr King
Apostle of liberty, humanitarian, Unitarian minister, who in the Civil War bound California to the Union and led her to excel all other states in support of the United States Sanitary Commission, predecessor to the American Red Cross. His statue, together with that of Father Junipero Serra, represents California in the National Capitol. His name is borne by a Yosemite peak - "a man to match our mountains."
