Roughing It - Chapter 55
Tired of Virginia City—An Old Schoolmate—A Two Years' Loan—Acting as an Editor—Almost Receive an Offer—An Accident—Three Drunken Anecdotes—Last Look at Mt. Davidson—A Beautiful Incident
 
 
 

Mark is tired of the Nevada Territory and decides to go to California. His last look at Mt Davidson reminds him of the day that the Union forces defeat the Confederate forces at Gettysburg. The flag on the top of Mt Davidson seems to signal this event but no one knows because of a journalistic monopoly that dictates all news of the East must first be printed in California papers.
