The War of Extermination

"A war of Extermination will continue to be waged between the two races until the Indian race becomes extinct."
 - California Governor Peter H. Burnett, January 1851

In 1856 the state of California paid 25 cents for each indian scalp. In 1860 the bounty was increased to $5.
