"It is probable that the Walker party saw Yosemite Valley from its rim in 1833. The narrative of Bunnell and the diaries of Robert Eccleston are the principal sources of information on the Mariposa Indian War, which indirectly brought the valley to the attention of the general public" (Currey & Kruska). It is thought that Bunnell and James Savage, leaders of the Mariposa Battalion of 1850-51, discovered the valley and gave it its name.
