Because of the reconstruction, you will be in roughly the same slate that the east people are from,in fact in 1880 there will be a new discovery in a land that is called Alaska that you US bought from Russia in which tons of gold is found and you guys need to capitalize on that before others do from the north. In 1996 in another part of Alaska even more gold is found
