Storyboard Text

  • My name is Li Wang and I am a 32 year old man with a beautiful wife and son.
  • The living conditions were sub par as well. My family was not happy. Ever since we lost the Opium war things have gone downhill.
  • Thinking long and hard while discussing it with my family, we thought it was for the best if I went to the United States. This was when the Gold Rush and plenty of jobs were there. The hope was to bring money back to my family.
  • I knew this would be a long journey ahead of me. I packed very little and said my goodbyes to my family, hoping I can come back with more money for them.
  • After a long period of time traveling, I finally made it to the United States. I was soon rushed off to California to become a factory worker. Although when it was possible I would try and find some Gold since the Gold Rush had started recently.
  • California was slowly growing more populated over time. Everyone was wanting to find freedom in the United States and to earn money for their families back home. Although the working conditions were better here, we all weren't paid equally. Money was money though, we all needed it.
