The Dahlonega Gold Rush

Hundreds of colonist came to Dahlonega for gold.


Trail of Tears

The Native American's on the other hand, were now homeless. Finding a new home would be a tough challenge for the Native Americans. They had to walk 2,200 miles to find a new home. The walk caused many Native Americans to die or to get life threatening illnesses.
