THOMSON, JOHN RENSHAW. Speech of Hon. J. R. Thomson, of New Jersey, on the Conquest of California; Delivered in the United States Senate, August 9, 1856. Washington, 1856. 16 p. Removed. An entirely politically-motivated attempt to draw attention to Commodore Stockton by having Congress recognize that Stockton, and not Colonel Fremont, was the real "conqueror" of California in 1846. Stockton at the time was being considered as a presidential candidate by the Know-Nothing Party. Thomson was the Commodore's brother-in-law. For more detail see Felcone, New Jersey Books, 1361.
