In 1848 James Marshall discovered gold at Sutter's Mill. This was the beginning of the Gold Rush.
I have found gold!
With the news of gold spreading, people made their way to California as quickly as they could. San Francisco became a boomtown due to the mass population.
I'm here to strike it rich!
Me too! My family is traveling out next week. The population is growin' like crazy
The overall effect of the Gold Rush was that it made California become more culturally diverse. However, due to all the gold mining a lot of the land was ruined.
