Book Description The Colt Press, 1989. hardcover. 1st Edition. San Francisco. 1989. The Colt Press. 1st American Edition. Wear to Corner Edges, Otherwise Good In Hardcover. No Dustjacket. 27. 90 pages. hardcover. keywords:. inventory # 42384. FROM THE PUBLISHER - On September 13th 1859, David Terry and David Broderick fought a duel near the southern tip of Lake Merced at the border between the San Francisco and the San Mateo counties. They dueled behind the barn at Lake House Ranch at Lake Merced because at the time Lake Merced was a popular dueling place because it was remote and a duel could occur without the law interfering. Dueling was illegal in San Francisco. Also, because Lake Merced is on the border between San Francisco and San Mateo counties, it would be harder for the authorities to interfere, since the lake is not actually in San Francisco, but south of the city’s border. Both men were Democrats and they were involved in California politics. Broderick was an U.S. senator and Terry was the chief justice on the California Supreme Court. David Broderick came from New York. Broderick was once in the stonecutters trade, and later he opened a workingmen’s saloon called The Subterranean. He was also once the leader of a volunteer fire company. After running for political office as an independent, he wound up as part of the Democratic party machine. Broderick was the son of Irish immigrants and he was strongly anti-slavery. He also was tough. He had been a fighter in New York City and had taken on the city’s toughest prizefighters, including Eli Hazleton, Seth Douglas, Abe Bogart, John Williamson, Mose Cutter, Sam Baisely, and Johnny Baum. He never won, but he had a reputation for never backing down. He was a big man with gnarled hands due to his years as a stonemason. He also had a knife scar that ran down his cheek into his beard. David Broderick helped form a law and order group of citizens that turned into a vigilante group, the San Francisco Committee of Vigilance. Terry was a very proud Southerner. He had been born in Kentucky and lived for a while in Texas before he moved to Stockton in December 1849. In 1852 Terry married Cornelia Runnels, the niece of the Mississippi governor. He was part of what was then called the Chivalry wing of the California Democratic Party. The Chivs were determined ‘to change the Constitution of the state by striking out that clause prohibiting slavery. or, failing in that, to divide the state and thus open a portion of California to Southerners and their property.’ The Chivs were pro-South and pro-slavery. These men wanted to put California in Southern hands, colonize the southern portion of the state with Southern people, and get the state legislature to divide the state, making the southern part of it slave. Broderick and other Californians who believed in anti-slavery were their mortal enemies. The Chivs wanted the anti-slavery people removed from any positions of power. At the time of the duel the Chivs were becoming more and more powerful. They seemed to be on the edge of victory. Terry had been a Texas Ranger and fought in the Mexican-American war. The judge was also a well-known knife fighter. One time in 1856 Terry had even used a bowie knife to almost stab to death Sterling Hopkins, a member of the San Francisco Committee of Vigilance. The Vigilance Committee had Terry arrested. David Broderick came to his defense, and he even paid three newspapers to write favorable accounts of the judge’s behavior. By June 1859, The Vigilance Committee was no longer functioning. Terry was constantly attacking the free-soil or anti-slavery wing of the Democratic Party. He called them ‘black Republicans’ and ‘negro lovers.’ It didn’t take before he insulted David Broderick personally. He said that the free-soilers were an unprincipled ‘remnant of a faction’ owned ‘heart and soul’ by Broderick, who got his guidance from ‘the banner of the black Douglass, whose name is Frederick.’ Of course the judge was referring to Frederick Douglass, the black abolitionist.
