The Stockton Emergency, July 1876

Security of the San Joaquin County Jail was furnished by thirty members of the Stockton Guard. This assistance was provided in response to the request of the Sheriff of San Joaquin County on July 22, 1876, "he being informed that certain lawless persons were combining to take from the jail a certain prisoner held by him in lawful custody." The Guardsmen were
furnished immediately and served until all apprehensions of anger had passed.
