Event Details

Come join us at Old St. Mary’s Chapel in Rocklin for our Speaker Series on California and the Civil War, a multimedia show created by Grass Valley author Richard Hurley, whose book on the topic has just been published by The History Press

Through fine art, maps, and photos, the show traces the political and military history of the Golden State and reveals how close California came to siding with the South in 1861. Featured are stories of men of honor like General Albert Sidney Johnston, a Southern sympathizer whose refusal to betray his officer’s oath spared California from partisan war – and San Francisco’s gifted orator, the Reverend Thomas Starr King, whom Abraham Lincoln dubbed “the man who saved California for the Union.” The show also depicts the exploits of daring Rebel partisans determined to act for the Confederacy in California, both by land and by sea.


(Monday) 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
