(p.170) Chapter 4. Race and reaction: Civil War political mobilization
The Public City


University of California Press

This chapter examines the transposition of the rules of political mobilization in San Francisco, California during the Civil War. It traces the ways in which the rights revolution of the Civil War unleashed the genie of social groups from within the republican logic of tyranny, dependence, and corruption by analyzing the careers of representative party leaders and their methods of mass mobilization. The chapter highlights the conversion of race from an identity of exclusion from citizenship into a fault line of mobilization within citizenship.

Keywords:   political mobilization, San Francisco, California, Civil War, rights revolution, social groups, mass mobilization, race, exclusion, citizenship
