"The Eastern sky is blushing red, The distant hilltops growing" What!!!!
GOLD! I FOUND GOLD!!!!!
You should have seen what happened. A Native found gold and another miner shot him for it.
This gold is turning people into savages. Everyone is desperate for riches!
Don't forget we still have to pay the 20%. If you think about it, the California government made more money than everyone.
We are lucky we found this gold. We are actually one of the lucky few. Most people who came to California in hopes of finding gold went broke because of all the fees. Yet, the California gold rush was still a very lucky and prosperous time for America.
GOLD!!!!! I found gold and there is nobody around to shoot me!
