Goldrush in California


When James W. Marshall discovered gold in California on January 24th, 1848, the California Goldrush began. While most of the people that traveled to California in search of gold were from the United States, many were also from Europe, Australia, Latin America, and Asia. Travels were hard and searching for gold was a risky enterprise, but the Goldrush caused a massive population increase; the city of San Francisco grew from a settlement of 200 to a city of 36,000 in 1852.

The Goldrush in California map includes a colorful labeled teacher’s map and an unlabeled student map that the child can label and color.
