The history of Union Square is deeply related to Civil War. This park is named "Union Square" because pro-Union Army campaigns were held here and this square was noticed as Union Army supporting movement. In 1903, the square constructed monument of Victory of Admiral George Dewey's victory of the battle of Manila Bay. This Victory monument "Victory", was modeled from the likeness of a local heiress, Alma de Bretteville Spreckels. This Victory tower is as show in the picture left.
Today Union Square is literally "heart" of San Francisco. Every weekend, there are some ceremonies and event are held including Art Shows. The last picture below shows an Art Show in one weekend. This Square is famous for Macy's sponsored Christmas Tree and Christmas Decoration. I will revisit this when Christmas time comes.
