The Gold Rush

The Gold Rush in the American West – 1800’s – it was a first time that people all over America came from all over the place. It didn’t always work so well – world class – multi ethic, cultural and religious society. Lured by gold to change their lives in an instant. The impoverished wealthy, women who followed their husbands, school teachers, sea captain’s son from New England…. black smith from New York….leaving wife, and children…to risk all they had for a prosperous future.
