The California Gold Rush Experience: Facts, Miners, Timeline, Towns (1998)
 
01:24:51
The California Gold Rush (1848–1855) began on January 24, 1848, when gold was found by James W. Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0671255371/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0671255371&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=e466e8af410d510aab178d97d3765afc The first to hear confirmed information about gold in California were residents of Oregon, the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), western Mexico, and Central America. They were the first to go there in late 1848. All told, the news of gold brought some 300,000 people to California from the rest of the United States and abroad. Of the 300,000, approximately half arrived by sea and half came overland from the east, on the California Trail and the Gila River trail. The gold-seekers, called "forty-niners" (as a reference to 1849), often faced substantial hardships on the trip. While most of the newly arrived were Americans, the Gold Rush attracted tens of thousands from Latin America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. At first, the gold nuggets could be picked up off the ground. Later, gold was recovered from streams and riverbeds using simple techniques, such as panning. More sophisticated methods were developed and later adopted elsewhere. At its peak, technological advances reached a point where significant financing was required, increasing the proportion of gold companies to individual miners. Gold worth tens of billions of today's dollars was recovered, which led to great wealth for a few. However, many returned home with little more than what they had started with. The effects of the Gold Rush were substantial. San Francisco grew from a small settlement of about 200 residents in 1846 to a boomtown of about 36,000 by 1852. Roads and other towns were built throughout California. In 1849 a state constitution was written, and a governor and legislature were chosen. California became a state as part of the Compromise of 1850. New methods of transportation developed as steamships came into regular service. By 1869 railroads were built across the country from California to the eastern United States. Agriculture and ranching expanded throughout the state to meet the needs of the settlers. At the beginning of the Gold Rush, there was no law regarding property rights in the goldfields and a system of "staking claims" was developed. The Gold Rush also resulted in attacks on Native Americans, who were forcibly removed from their lands. An estimated 100,000 California Indians died between 1848 and 1868, and some 4,500 of them were murdered. Gold mining also caused environmental harm to rivers and lakes. Overnight California gained the international reputation as the "golden state".[138] Generations of immigrants have been attracted by the California Dream. California farmers,[139] oil drillers,[140] movie makers,[141] airplane builders,[142] and "dot-com" entrepreneurs have each had their boom times in the decades after the Gold Rush.[143] The literary history of the Gold Rush is reflected in the works of Mark Twain (The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County), Bret Harte (A Millionaire of Rough-and-Ready), Joaquin Miller (Life Amongst the Modocs), and many others.[29][144] Included among the modern legacies of the California Gold Rush are the California state motto, "Eureka" ("I have found it"), Gold Rush images on the California State Seal,[145] and the state nickname, "The Golden State", as well as place names, such as Placer County, Rough and Ready, Placerville (formerly named "Dry Diggings" and then "Hangtown" during rush time), Whiskeytown, Drytown, Angels Camp, Happy Camp, and Sawyers Bar. The San Francisco 49ers National Football League team, and the similarly named athletic teams of California State University, Long Beach, are named for the prospectors of the California Gold Rush. In addition. the standard route shield of state highways in California is in the shape of a miner's spade to honor the California Gold Rush.[146][147] Today, aptly named State Route 49 travels through the Sierra Nevada foothills, connecting many Gold Rush-era towns such as Placerville, Auburn, Grass Valley, Nevada City, Coloma, Jackson, and Sonora.[148] This state highway also passes very near Columbia State Historic Park, a protected area encompassing the historic business district of the town of Columbia; the park has preserved many Gold Rush-era buildings, which are presently occupied by tourist-oriented businesses. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_gold_rush

Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California.[1] The news of gold brought some 300,000 people to California from the rest of the United States and abroad.[2] The sudden influx of immigration and gold into the money supply reinvigorated the American economy, and California became one of the few American states to go directly to statehood, in the Compromise of 1850. The Gold Rush initiated the California Genocide, with 100,000 Native Californians dying between 1848 and 1868. By the time it ended, California had gone from a thinly populated ex-Mexican territory to the home state of the first nominee for the Republican Party. The effects of the Gold Rush were substantial. Whole indigenous societies were attacked and pushed off their lands by the gold-seekers, called "forty-niners" (referring to 1849). The first to hear confirmed information of the gold rush were the people in Oregon, the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), and Latin America, and they were the first to start flocking to the state in late 1848. Of the 300,000 people who came to America during the Gold Rush, approximately half arrived by sea and half came overland on the California Trail and the Gila River trail; forty-niners often faced substantial hardships on the trip. While most of the newly arrived were Americans, the Gold Rush attracted tens of thousands from Latin America, Europe, Australia, and China. Agriculture and ranching expanded throughout the state to meet the needs of the settlers. San Francisco grew from a small settlement of about 200 residents in 1846 to a boomtown of about 36,000 by 1852. Roads, churches, schools and other towns were built throughout California. In 1849 a state constitution was written. The new constitution was adopted by referendum vote, and the future state's interim first governor and legislature were chosen. In September, 1850, California became a state. At the beginning of the Gold Rush, there was no law regarding property rights in the goldfields and a system of "staking claims" was developed. Prospectors retrieved the gold from streams and riverbeds using simple techniques, such as panning. Although the mining caused environmental harm, more sophisticated methods of gold recovery were developed and later adopted around the world.

10 Mysteries Of The Gold Rush!
 
10:59
10 Mysteries Of The Gold Rush! From it’s true origins to the massive amount of gold found…stay tuned to number 1 to find out 10 facts YOU need to know about the Gold Rush! This top 10 brought to you by Zero2Hero!! Don't forget to subscribe here! https://goo.gl/NXuChu Click here to find out the Top 10 Unknown Underground Cities! https://youtu.be/ckrNmi5Lpxo Number 10: Didn't Start In 1849. Despite a lot of folks saying that the Gold Rush started in California in 1849, that wasn't truly the case. It's the most popular year of the California Gold Rush, there's no doubt about that. But the event that helped start the whole thing actually happened in 1848. Don't be confused, I'll explain. Like all good gold rushes, this one started out by accident. A group of people were digging near the American River in their attempt to build a saw mill. While they were digging up dirt to help make way for it, they found a gold nugget. A nugget is a small compacted form of gold that can be picked up. After finding this one, they searched the nearby ground and river and found even more nuggets. This led to a massive telling of what happened around the town they were in. Which, naturally, spread across the nation, and that gave many people who were tired of living in the east the chance to head west, make their fortunes, and live a better life. By the time most got there, it was 1849, but the initial gold rush technically started in 1848. But if you want to be even MORE technical, it REALLY started in 1884, when a shopkeeper in San Francisco got a bottle full of gold dust and put it in his shop for all to see. And that kicked off the series of events that would lead to the eventually Gold Rush In California. Number 9: Not The First Gold Rush In The US. As I noted, the California Gold Rush is one that is very popular in the history and lore of the United States. It inspired the NFL team the San Francisco 49ers, and even made a villain of the legends of the Gold Rush in an episode of "Scooby-Doo." But what people forget, at times, is that this WASN'T the first gold rush in the United States. That gold rush happened 50 years earlier. This earlier event happened in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, when a 17-pound gold nugget was found in the ground in the country. For the record, at the current gold price, of about $1,300 an ounce, that would be over $22,000 dollars worth of gold, and that was just one nugget! So just like the eventual California Gold Rush, a large group of fortune seekers went migrated to North Carolina to search for their own share of the gold. And, eventually, around 30,000 people were out digging for it. And they had a LOT of success. So much so that for the next 30 years, all the gold coins that were produced by the government were being made mostly by the gold that came from North Carolina. Just goes to show you that gold can be just about anywhere, and a gold rush can follow it if it's found. Number 8: Biggest Migration In US History. Before we get into the migration, take a moment to like this video and join the Zero2Hero community by using the buttons below! Let's talk about the early days of the United States, ok? At first, there were 13 colonies, and after the Revolutionary War, the colonies won their independence. Soon enough, the Louisiana Purchase was made, and thus expanded the US greatly, allowing more and more people to both live in the land and live comfortably. But we still weren't populating much of the, then current, United States yet. While there were plenty on the western side of the US, it wasn't a tamed land like it is now. Rather, it was a lot of wilderness, and a lot of unknowns. It would take a LOT of encouragement to get people to move west and try to settle it. Say...like a gold rush? It's a fact that a LOT of people went to California and surrounding areas over the course of the Gold Rush migration. But the migration was also the biggest in United States history! In March of 1848, the most predominant people in the soon-to-be state of California were Native Americans. Only about 800 settlers from the east were there. Fast forward 20 months and suddenly there were 100,000 non-native people in the state! Fast forward to 1850, and 300,000 people had showed up. And all of this helped lead to California becoming the 31st state in the country. Number 7: Americans Weren't The Only Ones Digging For Gold. Another thing you have to remember about the world at that time was that communication most definitely wasn't the best around. At the time, the railroads weren't built, and so getting a message out from East to West was a hazardous adventure. To that end, some of the first people to take advantage of the Gold Rush fever weren't the settlers in the East, but were, instead, people from Asia and South America.

The California Gold Rush and the New American Dream: History, Facts (2002)
 
01:00:02
California's name became indelibly connected with the Gold Rush, and fast success in a new world became known as the "California Dream." About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0385720882/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0385720882&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=61cf5b04ca9e87b259f64408d8a5e27a California was perceived as a place of new beginnings, where great wealth could reward hard work and good luck. Historian H. W. Brands noted that in the years after the Gold Rush, the California Dream spread across the nation: “ The old American Dream ... was the dream of the Puritans, of Benjamin Franklin's "Poor Richard"... of men and women content to accumulate their modest fortunes a little at a time, year by year by year. The new dream was the dream of instant wealth, won in a twinkling by audacity and good luck. [This] golden dream ... became a prominent part of the American psyche only after Sutter's Mill.[151] ” Overnight California gained the international reputation as the "golden state".[152] Generations of immigrants have been attracted by the California Dream. California farmers,[153] oil drillers,[154] movie makers,[155] airplane builders,[156] and "dot-com" entrepreneurs have each had their boom times in the decades after the Gold Rush.[157] Included among the modern legacies of the California Gold Rush are the California state motto, "Eureka" ("I have found it"), Gold Rush images on the California State Seal,[158] and the state nickname, "The Golden State", as well as place names, such as Placer County, Rough and Ready, Placerville (formerly named "Dry Diggings" and then "Hangtown" during rush time), Whiskeytown, Drytown, Angels Camp, Happy Camp, and Sawyers Bar. The San Francisco 49ers National Football League team, and the similarly named athletic teams of California State University, Long Beach, are named for the prospectors of the California Gold Rush. In addition. the standard route shield of state highways in California is in the shape of a miner's spade to honor the California Gold Rush.[159][160] Today, aptly named State Route 49 travels through the Sierra Nevada foothills, connecting many Gold Rush-era towns such as Placerville, Auburn, Grass Valley, Nevada City, Coloma, Jackson, and Sonora.[161] This state highway also passes very near Columbia State Historic Park, a protected area encompassing the historic business district of the town of Columbia; the park has preserved many Gold Rush-era buildings, which are presently occupied by tourist-oriented businesses. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Gold_Rush

The California Gold Rush (In Our Time)
 
48:04
Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss the California Gold Rush. In 1849 the recent discovery of gold at Coloma, near Sacramento in California, led to a massive influx of prospectors seeking to make their fortunes. Within a couple of years the tiny settlement of San Francisco had become a major city, with tens of thousands of immigrants, the so-called Forty-Niners, arriving by boat and over land. The gold rush transformed the west coast of America and its economy, but also uprooted local populations of Native Americans and made irreversible changes to natural habitats. With: Kathleen Burk Professor of Modern and Contemporary History at University College London Jacqueline Fear-Segal Reader in American History and Culture at the University of East Anglia Frank Cogliano Professor of American History at the University of Edinburgh.

Deep Blue Mystery Mineral Inside An Abandoned Mine In Nevada
 
18:54
Well, getting to this abandoned mine proved the old adage about how you’ve got to want it… We drove as far as we could down rough dirt roads in a remote part of Nevada until even the 4WD with high clearance couldn’t go any farther. Then, we switched over to dirt bikes and rode those for many miles through the mountains until it was impossible to proceed even on the bikes. At that point, I descended the steep canyon on foot to finally reach this mine. There was certainly no road leading all of the way to the mine and there wasn’t even a trail that I saw after the road stopped. It was pure bushwhacking getting down to explore this one. Given how hard it was to get to this mine and given the fact that I lugged the drone all of the way down to the bottom of the canyon meant that you were getting drone footage in this video even if the drone had never left the ground! I didn’t see any signs of heavy equipment having been at this site (which is not surprising considering the location), but it still would have been quite a feat just bringing in the rail for the ore carts as well as the tools the miners would have needed. And if they used metal ore carts, these would HAVE to have been brought to the mine in pieces and reassembled on site. The cabin/workshop was somewhat interesting to me. I didn’t see any signs of a bed or really any signs that the miners had lived there aside from those couple of rusty cans that we saw inside. Also, that structure would not have been a pleasant place to stay in the winter! However, it would have been impossible for someone to commute in to this mine given the distances involved. So, someone must have stayed here. Given how this seemed like something of a shoestring mining operation, it makes me wonder if a couple of miners didn’t just sleep rough inside of that structure of corrugated metal during the warmer months along with their tools and that primitive fireplace to keep away the cold at night. The miners might have just worked here for a couple of seasons. While exploring this abandoned mine and its surroundings, I saw no evidence at all that anyone has visited this site in decades. The “road” – if you can even call it that – which runs closest to the site was completely overgrown and sections of it were blocked by small rockslides. All traces of whatever trail that might have once existed and descended to the mine have vanished. And, of course, there were no footprints or signs of modern human activity such as trash or tire marks within many miles of this abandoned mine. It isn’t often that one is able to visit a historical site like that in our modern era. I was quite taken with that brilliant, deep blue mystery mineral inside of the mine... I have never seen anything like it outside of the fine lapis lazuli that is mined in Afghanistan. However, I don’t believe that what we saw inside of the mine was lapis lazuli… Was it? I sincerely hope that someone in the audience can definitively identify it. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference… You can click here for the full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

City Of Gold Mine, Bodie Ghost Town
 
13:07
City Of Gold Mine, Bodie Ghost Town. Bodie Ghost Town State Historic Park is a genuine California gold-mining ghost town. Visitors can walk down the deserted streets of a town that once had a population of nearly 10,000 people. The town is named for Waterman S. Body (William Bodey), who had discovered small amounts of gold in hills north of Mono Lake. In 1875, a mine cave-in revealed pay dirt, which led to purchase of the mine by the Standard Company in 1877. People flocked to Bodie and transformed it from a town of a few dozen to a boomtown. #BodieGhostTown #GhostTown #goldmine #oldtown #nationalhistory

Oroville Dam – Massive Gold Rush Now Underway at the ‘Sluice Box’ Spillway? (Video)
 
04:19
http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2017/02/oroville-dam-is-a-massive-gold-rush-now-underway-at-the-sluice-box-spillway-video-3482248.html Here are the facts: Millions of cubic yards of virgin soil and bedrock are being displaced below the Oroville dam, earth that has never seen the light of day. The amounts of earth moved rival the all time operations during the gold rush years of the 1800s in that area.   The area is heavily guarded, patrolled by several agencies, some have little to do with earth moving.   Several workers were fired for posting pictures of the spillway online.   The spillway is designed exactly like a giant sluice box.   Water will continue to destroy the mountainside and expose new earth well into summer 2017.   Gold will accumulate just downstream of the spillway in cracks and veins.   If the entire dam goes, billions of dollars of gold will be unearthed.   Oroville Lake is the site of the submerged gold mine of Bidwell Bar, one of the first to begin the California Gold Rush. The native Maidu Indians were tricked into trading gold rocks for items of very little value. The MAURU-tanian King Juba of North Africa ruled over the port of OPHIR, where Solomon received his gold once every 3 years.   Oroville was originally named Ophir City, after the gold port of Solomon in North Africa. Yuba is the Berber pronounciation of King Juba, a North African Roman ruler, who was married to the daughter of Cleopatra.   Mount Ophir, further south, was the location of the very first Gold Coin Mint in California run by the Assayer, Humbert. Is state sponsored Freemason gold mining at the expense of taxpayer dollars and public safety now underway? The heavily guarded, media censored spillway, and stretches of river beneath it, may yield billions of dollars in GOLD as tons of rock and sediment have been dislodged from the mountainside. As soon as water levels subside this summer, let the new California gold rush begin!!! The state will most certainly pick clean the off limits areas. But, you can bet that further downstream there wil be gold to be had. The videos below delve deeper into all the proof surrounding this very peculiar dam and its history!

Perhaps the single most daunting thing about trying to distill the history of the Bay Area into a few blog posts is the sheer volume of stuff out there — first-person accounts, histories, documentaries, websites — detailing the region’s past. A big part of that story, of course, is how quickly a landscape we can scarcely imagine today was remade into the metropolis. Here, we attempt to give a glimpse of that process, from the earliest days of the Gold Rush to this morning’s stop-and-go traffic on the 101.
