The Gold Rush
The Gold Rush was when people found gold in rivers in some parts of the U.S.A. like California, Alaska, and Colorado. It all started in the year of 1840. In California James Marshall found gold in a nearby river working for John Sutter. Marshall said to keep it in a secret but the person who checked if it was real splattered it out .This formed a giant amount of people. Sutter’s workers quit and went to look for the gold, like this John Sutter got poor. This is what happened the most of the times
