Transcript of Pablo Martinez california gold rush

By Pablo Martinez The California gold rush 1849 By Pablo Martinez How It All Began Once people heard about the gold that was found they came. People from Russia,Mexico,Canada and all over the world came for the gold and moved to Sacramento. They rode and ships and it took months to get there and to find the gold. Travelers Many peple were moving to Sacramento, but some challenges came to them, and one of them was, money. Store owners knew that alot of people were coming and they wanted money, so they raised prices on food and shelter. The prices were outrages! Like one barrel of flour for 200$ in todays money. So many travelers did not have enough money to make a life out of it, so then they had to start a buisiness and stop looking for gold to live. It was a wise decision of those people to stay alive than to be rich. Price Raises Westward Expansion 1849
