Glenn. A more in-depth look at the formation of Glenn County will show that its separation from Colusa County created a fierce contest among the people of those counties. Trains filled with hundreds of citizens traveled to Sacramento to lobby the governor- a few people were even hired from outside of the county to vote for the separation. There are reports that guns were brought to the courthouse for the first election of Glenn County officials in May 1891. To this day, there remains an air of discontent between the two counties.
