This chapter presents a paper the on Squatter Riot of 1850 in Sacramento, California. The scenes of violence themselves form but a small part of the real story of the movement, and the paper attempts to present a somewhat connected account of the events that preceded the riot and that culminated therein. The materials are drawn principally from the contemporary files of the Placer Times and the Sacramento Transcript; but Josiah Royce also seeks to accomplish what has certainly so far been neglected—to indicate the true historical significance of this little episode in the pioneer annals. He believes that the importance of the conflict was greater than even the combatants themselves knew; and most people are not in a fair way to comprehend the facts unless they remind themselves of a good many long since forgotten details of the narrative.
