Did you know that the Chinese Immigrants came to America because they heard of gold, from China.
By the time Chinese Immigrants arrived in America, most of the easy gold was gone. Americans used threats to push the Chinese away from the mines, settlers were jealous so they hurt the Chinese.
Some reasons that traveling to California was good, (or vice-versa.) It was good for the Chinese Immigrants because they got money. It was bad because they got hurt from the dangerous jobs they were forced to do.
The Chinese Immigrants made their own tools, They also built big railroads. (For example: The Transcontinental Railroad.)
To annoy the Chinese miners, American miners used violence to push Chinese Immigrants away from the mines.
I wonder what would have happened if the Chinese Immigrants got all the gold how would things be different.
