The Barton Massacre of 1857


Irvine History Today  Wednesday, March 2, 2016

It's hard to imagine that Irvine, the safest city in the U.S., was the setting of an infamous historical event known as The Barton Massacre. On this week's program, Paul Spitzzeri of the Homestead Museum will discuss what led up to the violence in 1857, as well as the racial repercussions that followed.

If you'd like to learn more about this event and others from this period of southern California history, check out Paul Spitzzeri's excellent blog; Trembling on The Brink: Crime and Justice in Los Angeles 1850-1875
