Description

Map of the Mining District of California by Wm. A. Jackson. Published by Lambert & Lane.

The California Gold Rush began in 1848 with the discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill, in Coloma, California. As news of the find travelled, California saw a massive influx of people (known as "Forty-Niners") and it's cities boomed. Some of the earliest gold seekers were able to find gold quite easily, and were able to pull thousands of dollars worth out of the rivers daily. However, as more and more gold seekers arrived, many more left empty handed. The effect that the Gold Rush had on the American west coast cannot be understated. With a population of 15,000 before the discovery, hundreds of thousands left their homes for the "Golden State", and the territory saw it's cities chartered, a state constitution drafted, and it's admittance to the Union in 1850. This beautiful map provides an exciting look into the state's past.
