The California Mutiny: Fort Humboldt in the American Civil War


With Thomas Mays

Humboldt County has a rich and somewhat disturbing Civil War history. Events at Fort Humboldt stand as one of the most dramatic breakdowns of military discipline in U.S. Army history. Participate in a dynamic lecture at HBAC then travel via personal vehicles to the Fort for a tour of the 1863 Civil War hospital and site.
