Excerpt
Introduction: Forty?two years have passed since California?s golden star first glittered in the flag of the United States of America. Its chequered history virtually begins with the rush for gold in ?48?'49. Acquired for the evident purpose of extending slave?holding territory, it was occupied for years by a multitude of cosmopolitan ?free lances,? who swept away the defenceless Indians, and brutally robbed the great native families, the old ?Dons.? Society slowly made headway against these motley adventurers. Mad riot, wildest excess, marked these earlier days. High above the meaner knights of the ?revolver and bowie knife,? greater than card sharper, fugitive bravo, or sly wanton, giant schemers appeared, who throw, yet, dark shadows over the records of this State. These daring conspirators dominated legislature and forum, public office and society. They spoiled the Mexican, robbed the Indian, and paved the way for a ?Lone Star Republic,? or the delivering of the great treasure fields of the West to the leaders of Secession.
