Monika Trobits is the author ofAntebellum and Civil War San Francisco: A Western Theatre for Northern & Southern Politics
(Arcadia Publishing, 2014) and an upcoming second book that explores the San Francisco Bay Area through the rise, fall and renaissance of coffee.
San Francisco in the mid-19th century, an instant city, geographically isolated in the West, yet fated to be the gateway for a worldwide migration in search of golden dreams. Argonauts rushed west from the Northern and Southern states, seemingly leaving behind the political and economic slavery-related tensions of the era only to find that it had all traveled west with them. Thousands made the arduous journey to San Francisco, a boomtown, fraught with daily dramas, political rivalries and heated battles over pending statehood.
Monika Trobits has been studying San Francisco history since the mid-1980s, evolving into a local historian, a long-time walking tour docent/guide and a published writer of non-fiction works about the city.
Monika's credibility and passion for San Francisco is instantly apparent as soon as she starts sharing the details her topic (and she has many.) Treat yourself to the fascinating story or the southerners and northers, the Chivalry and the Shovelry, in Civil War San Francisco.
