Choose Your Weapon: The Duel in California, 1847-1861 describes in graphic detail the major figures, causes and means by which the 75 "affairs of honor" were fought in the Golden State during this time frame. The number of shootouts between these "gentleman" was greater than that of any other state during those pre-civil war years.     Because so many were fought over politics, the book reveals much about the major politicians and newspaper editors of that era. In addition, there is a great deal of irony. For example, in 1850 Assemblyman George Penn Johnston crafted a bill that provided severe penalties for anyone convicted of dueling. Still, it remained impossible to empanel a jury that would convict a duelist. Eight years later this same legislator sent a challenge to a member of the State Senate, and in the shootout that followed, killed him. Though found not guilty, he was the first duelist to be tried under the very statute he had authored.    New evidence also reveals there was far more paradox than previously imagined regarding the infamous duel between U.S. Senator David C. Broderick and State Supreme Court Justice David Terry.     Perhaps the most grueling duel ever to take place on America's frontier was the 1853 faceoff between U.S. Senator William Gwin and Congressman Joseph W. McCorckle. Fought in the hills above bucolic San Mateo with 54 caliber Mississippi Yagers at forty paces, by dint of a miracle neither was killed.     In summary "Choose Your Weapon" provides readers with an invaluable historical primer on California's Golden Era, as well as the tumultuous temperament of its pioneer politicians and newspaper editors., paperback, Label: Stairway Press, Stairway Press, Product group: Book, Published: 2013-12-10, Studio: Stairway Press, Sales rank: 9902153.

In Gold Rush-era California, gunfighters weren't outlaws or desperadoes ― they were were prominent journalists, legislators, governors, and judges. Choose Your Weapon brings to life a now-forgotten time, when California was a raw new state with politics as violent as any banana republic. This was the Golden Age of dueling, when prominent citizens would settle their political and personal disputes with gunfire, according to the venerable law of the code duello. Choose Your Weapon documents every notable duel to have occurred in California, from the arrival of U.S. dueling culture with the first American settlers to the end of dueling's popularity on the eve of the Civil War. In the heyday of dueling culture, men from all walks of life, from politicians to manual laborers, fought formal duels. Duels could be triggered by political battles to shape state government―or they could be fought over a woman or a personal slight. Braggarts often proved to be cowards on the field of honor, and many a quiet and peaceable man could shoot with deadly accuracy when reputation was at stake. For the California gentlemen of the 1850s, honor or dishonor―and life or death―could be decided with a single shot.
