About this Item

29p. The official report in the Senate from Jefferson Davis on the Vigilance Committee of San Francisco in 1856. Governor J. Neely Johnson of California requested additional arms and ammunition to Major-General William Tecumseh Sherman to put down what he term an unlawful organization known as the Vigilance Committee. The papers included were from Governor Johnson, General Wool, and others. The long letter of General Sherman on the fear of issuing 8,000 muskets to the militia in San Francisco is remarkable. He trusted the militia, clearly the Governor and others did not. A fascinating document. Bookseller Inventory # 018967
