Claim Concerning Title to Point San Jose in San Francisco [Trial]. Steinbach, R., Plaintiff. Flagg, John H., Attorney. Point San Jose: Supplementary Brief in Behalf of Claimants. N.p., [c.1870]. 10 pp. Octavo (9" x 5-1/2"). Self-wrappers, recto of first leaf and verso of terminal leaf soiled, crease to lower corner, internally clean. $20. * Only edition. Located near the entrance to the Golden Gate, Point San Jose was occupied by the U.S. military in 1863. The military claimed it was entitled to do this because the nation was in a state of war. It established a series of artillery batteries and continued to hold the land after the war. This irregular annexation was the basis of Steinbach's suit, which was first filed in 1866.
