Amador County Points of Interest
Three markers in formation.
Soldier Gulch has variant spellings, sometimes Soldier Gulch and sometimes Soldiers' Gulch.
The Soldier Gulch marker reads:
E Clampus Vitus
This plaque is in commemoration of two soldiers of a party from Stevenson's New York Regiment who discovered Volcano Valley in late 1848 and camped here in Soldier Gulch through a harsh winter. Their bodies were discovered in the spring and buried somewhere here by a party of Mexicans.
May these pioneers rest in peace
