Hide Profile

Newcomb's San Antonio pro-Union newspaper, the Alamo Express, was destroyed by a mob on 13 November 1861, and his life was threatened. He fled to Mexico and then California where he joined Col. J.H. Carleton's California Column on its trek through Arizona and New Mexico. He later went on mining expeditions in Arizona and published a newspaper in San Francisco before returning to Texas in 1867.
