San Francisco was established by colonists from Spain on June 29, 1776. They set up the Presidio at San Francisco at the Golden Gate, and Mission San Francisco de Asis just a few miles away. Both were named after Francis of Assisii. California's Gold Rush in 1849 saw rapid growth. The city was the largest on the West Coast at that time. Between 1870 and 1900, nearly one-quarter of California's total population lived in the city. San Francisco was reorganized into a city-county in 1856. Three-quarters of the city had been destroyed by fire and earthquake in 1906. It was quickly rebuilt and hosted the Panama-Pacific International Exposition nine more years later. It was the main port of embarkation for military personnel shipping to the Pacific Theater during World War II. In 1945, it became the birthplace of the United Nations. The war brought together significant immigration, returning servicemen, liberalizing attitudes, and the rise of "beatnik" countercultures. In addition to these factors, the Sexual Revolution and the Peace Movement, which grew out of opposition to US involvement in the Vietnam War, led to the Summer of Love and the establishment of San Francisco as a center of liberal activism in the United States. The city is strongly influenced by the liberal Democratic Party.
