President Millard Fillmore established the Presidio for military use in November 1850. During the 1850s and 1860s, Presidio-based soldiers fought Native Americans in California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada.
The outbreak of the Civil War in 1861 re-emphasized the importance of Californias riches and the military significance of San Franciscos harbor to the Union. This led, in 1862, to the first major construction and expansion program at the Presidio since the United States acquired it.
On Dec. 12, 1884, the War Department designated 9 acres, including the site of the old post cemetery, as San Francisco National Cemetery. It was the first national cemetery established on the West Coast and, as such, marks the growth and development of a system of national cemeteries extending beyond the battlefields of the Civil War.
In 1989, the Presidio closed as a military entity and was transferred to the National Park Service in October 1994.
San Francisco National Cemetery was listed as a National Historic Landmark as part of the Presidio in 1962.
