Los Angeles in Civil War days, 1860-65 by John W Robinson( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most accounts of California's role in the Civil War focus on the northern part of the state, San Francisco in particular. In this book, John W Robinson looks to the southern half and offers an enlightening sketch of Los Angeles and its people, politics, and economic trends from 1860 to 1865. Drawing on contemporary reports in the Los Angeles Star, Southern News, and other sources, Robinson shows how the war came to Los Angeles and narrates the struggle between the pro-Southern faction and the Unionists. Los Angeles in the early 1860s was a developing town, lacking many of the refinements of civilization that San Francisco then enjoyed, and was much smaller than the metropolis we know today The book focuses on the effects of the war on Los Angeles, but Robinson also considers social and economic problems to provide a broader view of the community and its place in the nation. The Conscription Act and devalued greenbacks incited public unrest, and the cattle-killing drought of 1862-64, a smallpox epidemic, and recurrent vigilantism challenged Angelenos as well.--Adapted from back cover
