1848 - 1852 was unquestionably one of the most influential periods of westward movement in America. The discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in California in 1848 lead to the 1849 Gold Rush. The dream of striking it rich and starting a new life inspired hundreds of thousands of adventurous souls from around the world to uproot and resettle in the west. This 1849 gold rush ultimately sped up the process of California moving from a U.S. territory to gaining statehood faster than neighboring areas.
Almost fifty years later gold was discovered in the Klondike River in the Alaskan Yukon leading to yet another massive rush of people seeking their fortune in a vast, unknown wilderness. This Alaskan rush has been labeled several names, but we like to think of it as The Last Great Gold Rush. Truly brave and unwavering frontiersmen forging their way through the mountains to make their own destinies.
The mining was arduous and dangerous work and there was no guarantee of reward at the end of the day. Some made a fortune while others toiled for years to no avail.
