Subject: [la-history] Chinese American Museum follow-up...
During our meetup tour of the Chinese American Museum a few weeks ago, the tour guides mentioned briefly about the Chinese massacre that occurred in downtown Los Angeles in 1871. A new book has just been published about the event, titled, The Chinatown War : Chinese Los Angeles and the Massacre of 1871 by Scott Zesch.
There was a review of the book in yesterday's Sunday L.A. Times. It's definitely a look at the darker side of Los Angeles history, but a significant one. Just sending this out to anyone who might be interested but may have missed this review.

The History of Los Angeles Meetup Group was created for people who are interested in learning & exploring the city's rich history and culture. Yes! Los Angeles does have a full, and complicated history and a diverse culture. It should...indigenous people lived in the area for thousands of years before the Los Angeles was founded, and than it existed under the government of 3 different nations, Spain, Mexico, and the U.S. -in fact, all 3 nations are even included in the city's official seal. Ad of course we're a melting pot as we have people here from all over the world. The Meetups include tours, special events, book discussions, films, lectures, or any other events around town involving the history and culture of L.A. We look forward to seeing you soon.
