This week in Placer County history

thomas-starr-king_crop.pngOn March 21, 1861, Unitarian Minister (Thomas) Starr King gave a lecture in the Methodist Church in Auburn on the “Character of Washington.”

King was a well-known abolitionist and fervent supporter of the Union and his lecture on George Washington was crafted to inspire people to reject secession and embrace the Union. By the time of his lecture in Auburn, six states had already seceded from the Union.

In 1849, King began his ministerial career at the Hollis Street Church in Boston, Massachusetts.

In 1860, the First Unitarian Church of San Francisco offered him their pulpit and he accepted.

After the Civil War broke out on April 12, 1861, with the shelling of Fort Sumpter, King became extremely active on the lecture circuit. He traveled up and down California raising money for the Union’s Sanitary Commission, the precursor to the Red Cross.

He also traveled across the country using his innate command of the podium and his words as weapons to defend the Union. Although he never wore a uniform, he was every bit a soldier for the North and his battle was just as hazardous.

His body, weakened by a relentless lecture schedule, became vulnerable to infection. On March 4, 1864, after a short bout with diphtheria, King died at the age of 39.

Numerous schools and streets are named for Starr King, as well as mountain peaks in New Hampshire (Mount Starr King in the White Mountains) and California (Mount Starr King in Yosemite National Park).
