Re: [civilwarwest] Re: Interesting article on CW
- I read a book review in the last week that suggested
that California gold played an important part in
financing the war. I don't seem to be able to find
the title or author. The book sounded rather
California-centric (arguments about California coming
in as a free state helped cause the war, California
gold financed it, the transcontinental RR to
Cal;ifornia healed the nation after the war).
Certainly Nevada silver was important, important
enough to bring Nevada in as a state.
The review didn't mention any battles or expeditions
Wish I could be more helpful but ...

Guild Press has done a fantastic job in catching typos, although a few
slipped through. When cross-checked, I find that they were in cases
where the original was printed lightly or blurred.
BTW, I am always amazed at how few typos there are in the original ORs!
Boy, those folk had great spell-checkers on their typesetters!

In this instance I had just cut and pasted the text from the ORs at
www.ehistory.com I have found at other times that there are typos
in their text. I think the material there is scanned in and it is
likel that the optic reader misread things such as an 'r' and a 'v'
as an 'n'.
