Until gold was discovered by James Marshall, California was a far-off land and San Francisco a shantytown. But once the world heard of the gold strikes, America was on the move!

This essay on how the California gold rush really did change the face of America is for anyone whose feet get itchy just thinking of what those days must have been like.

The author is a long-time history buff and Amazon best-selling author. When not writing about history she spends as much time as she can walking in history's footsteps.
