I'm reading William Tecumseh Sherman's Memoirs. It's fascinating reading, even in the early chapters.

Sherman was posted to California during the Mexican War. He spent four years there. Gold was discovered at Sutter's Mill during that time, and he was intimately involved in and observed all the upheaval that came to California, up until his departure in early 1850.
