Shop on Barnes & Noble


David Jack literally stole thousands of acres of Mexican land grants given to Monterey by the previous Mexican governments. Monterey didn't have the money to satisfy the claims with the U.S. Claims Commission. A lawyer proved the claims legal, but Monterey couldn't afford the legal bill. The Mexican land claims were auctioned off on the courthouse steps.
