Men in the Gold Rush

January 24, 1848 in the West towards California and Oregon

Traveling

Traveling in the Gold Rush was a long journey from the east to the west. Most people went in wagons with horse pulling them. It took them almost 2 seasons to get there.

Gold

People went to find great treasures of gold. But, some people took that to their advantages by selling fake gold or they call it "fools gold". Fools gold looks like gold but is actually not gold.

The Men

Men were the main reason the gold rush went on for so long was because they were the main people going to mine or find the gold.
