10 Mysteries Of The Gold Rush!
10 Mysteries Of The Gold Rush! From it’s true origins to the massive amount of gold found…stay tuned to number 1 to find out 10 facts YOU need to know about the Gold Rush! This top 10 brought to you by Zero2Hero!! Don't forget to subscribe here! https://goo.gl/NXuChu Click here to find out the Top 10 Unknown Underground Cities! https://youtu.be/ckrNmi5Lpxo Number 10: Didn't Start In 1849. Despite a lot of folks saying that the Gold Rush started in California in 1849, that wasn't truly the case. It's the most popular year of the California Gold Rush, there's no doubt about that. But the event that helped start the whole thing actually happened in 1848. Don't be confused, I'll explain. Like all good gold rushes, this one started out by accident. A group of people were digging near the American River in their attempt to build a saw mill. While they were digging up dirt to help make way for it, they found a gold nugget. A nugget is a small compacted form of gold that can be picked up. After finding this one, they searched the nearby ground and river and found even more nuggets. This led to a massive telling of what happened around the town they were in. Which, naturally, spread across the nation, and that gave many people who were tired of living in the east the chance to head west, make their fortunes, and live a better life. By the time most got there, it was 1849, but the initial gold rush technically started in 1848. But if you want to be even MORE technical, it REALLY started in 1884, when a shopkeeper in San Francisco got a bottle full of gold dust and put it in his shop for all to see. And that kicked off the series of events that would lead to the eventually Gold Rush In California. Number 9: Not The First Gold Rush In The US. As I noted, the California Gold Rush is one that is very popular in the history and lore of the United States. It inspired the NFL team the San Francisco 49ers, and even made a villain of the legends of the Gold Rush in an episode of "Scooby-Doo." But what people forget, at times, is that this WASN'T the first gold rush in the United States. That gold rush happened 50 years earlier. This earlier event happened in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, when a 17-pound gold nugget was found in the ground in the country. For the record, at the current gold price, of about $1,300 an ounce, that would be over $22,000 dollars worth of gold, and that was just one nugget! So just like the eventual California Gold Rush, a large group of fortune seekers went migrated to North Carolina to search for their own share of the gold. And, eventually, around 30,000 people were out digging for it. And they had a LOT of success. So much so that for the next 30 years, all the gold coins that were produced by the government were being made mostly by the gold that came from North Carolina. Just goes to show you that gold can be just about anywhere, and a gold rush can follow it if it's found. Number 8: Biggest Migration In US History. Before we get into the migration, take a moment to like this video and join the Zero2Hero community by using the buttons below! Let's talk about the early days of the United States, ok? At first, there were 13 colonies, and after the Revolutionary War, the colonies won their independence. Soon enough, the Louisiana Purchase was made, and thus expanded the US greatly, allowing more and more people to both live in the land and live comfortably. But we still weren't populating much of the, then current, United States yet. While there were plenty on the western side of the US, it wasn't a tamed land like it is now. Rather, it was a lot of wilderness, and a lot of unknowns. It would take a LOT of encouragement to get people to move west and try to settle it. Say...like a gold rush? It's a fact that a LOT of people went to California and surrounding areas over the course of the Gold Rush migration. But the migration was also the biggest in United States history! In March of 1848, the most predominant people in the soon-to-be state of California were Native Americans. Only about 800 settlers from the east were there. Fast forward 20 months and suddenly there were 100,000 non-native people in the state! Fast forward to 1850, and 300,000 people had showed up. And all of this helped lead to California becoming the 31st state in the country. Number 7: Americans Weren't The Only Ones Digging For Gold. Another thing you have to remember about the world at that time was that communication most definitely wasn't the best around. At the time, the railroads weren't built, and so getting a message out from East to West was a hazardous adventure. To that end, some of the first people to take advantage of the Gold Rush fever weren't the settlers in the East, but were, instead, people from Asia and South America.

State Police Interrupt a Gold Mining Operation in Oregon!
Our mining claim neighbors called the Cops! People living on the other side of the river where our mining claim is and not liking our mining, called the cops. It appears our neighbors just did not want their liberal utopia disturbed so they call the cops to harass us. The police were very cool as I knew one of them from checking our permits on another river couple months earlier and an Oregon DEQ meeting he showed up at. The rude lady yells to at from other side of river "you need a permit to do that"...we had them of course. She also told cops we were disrespecful and rude to her...which was totally false. She made up her own narrative about what was happening to justify her being annoyed. Liberal tactic # 3, change the narrative or just plain lie! This is the short version of the video, filmed on the Applegate River in Oregon while we were LEGALLY GOLD MINING! In the video, it is a continuous video, shot on my GoPro camera that I was wearing on my head. The video shows me mining and moving around with no editing to show what actually goes on while mining. Then my buddy is helping me move rocks while I'm using a sub-surface dredge...then the cops show up , and I tell him is where the action starts. UPDATE Jan 1st, 2015: In response to some of the comments saying we are uneducated, rednecks and other stuff...the guys in the video are as follows. One is a millionaire CPA, another a self employed business owner, two others are also self employed and owns a body shop and the other an internet marketer and freelance videographer, and lastly one is the son of the CPA guy and currently in college. Oregon Mining Law: Next time this happens, I will ask the State Police to cite the offending people who disrupt our mining operation based on this Oregon Mining Law: "ORS 517.133 Interfering with a mining operation. (1) As used in this section, "lawful mining operation" means any small scale mining operation that is in full compliance with state and federal laws. (2) A person commits the crime of interfering with a mining operation if the person intentionally: (a) Interferes with a lawful mining operation; or (b) Stops, or causes to be stopped, a lawful mining operation. (3) Interfering with a mining operation is a Class C misdemeanor. [1999 c.354 §6]" Here is the GoPro camera I was using: http://amzn.to/19yYus6

Gold Prospecting
The Gold Rush may be over, but panning for gold is still very much alive in California. Deep in the Angeles National Forest, about an hour's drive from L.A., is a group of dedicated "gold diggers" who meticulously examine the San Gabriel River and pan for gold. Even though much of California's gold is gone, many Angelenos believe otherwise. Reporter Judy Muller interviews Bernie McGrath, a prospector who turned his life around after spending years hooked on heroin. McGrath is one of many regulars who work a stretch of the San Gabriel River, patiently gold prospecting with the hopes of finding flakes and nuggets of gold.

The California Gold Rush Experience: Facts, Miners, Timeline, Towns (1998)
The California Gold Rush (1848–1855) began on January 24, 1848, when gold was found by James W. Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0671255371/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0671255371&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=e466e8af410d510aab178d97d3765afc The first to hear confirmed information about gold in California were residents of Oregon, the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), western Mexico, and Central America. They were the first to go there in late 1848. All told, the news of gold brought some 300,000 people to California from the rest of the United States and abroad. Of the 300,000, approximately half arrived by sea and half came overland from the east, on the California Trail and the Gila River trail. The gold-seekers, called "forty-niners" (as a reference to 1849), often faced substantial hardships on the trip. While most of the newly arrived were Americans, the Gold Rush attracted tens of thousands from Latin America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. At first, the gold nuggets could be picked up off the ground. Later, gold was recovered from streams and riverbeds using simple techniques, such as panning. More sophisticated methods were developed and later adopted elsewhere. At its peak, technological advances reached a point where significant financing was required, increasing the proportion of gold companies to individual miners. Gold worth tens of billions of today's dollars was recovered, which led to great wealth for a few. However, many returned home with little more than what they had started with. The effects of the Gold Rush were substantial. San Francisco grew from a small settlement of about 200 residents in 1846 to a boomtown of about 36,000 by 1852. Roads and other towns were built throughout California. In 1849 a state constitution was written, and a governor and legislature were chosen. California became a state as part of the Compromise of 1850. New methods of transportation developed as steamships came into regular service. By 1869 railroads were built across the country from California to the eastern United States. Agriculture and ranching expanded throughout the state to meet the needs of the settlers. At the beginning of the Gold Rush, there was no law regarding property rights in the goldfields and a system of "staking claims" was developed. The Gold Rush also resulted in attacks on Native Americans, who were forcibly removed from their lands. An estimated 100,000 California Indians died between 1848 and 1868, and some 4,500 of them were murdered. Gold mining also caused environmental harm to rivers and lakes. Overnight California gained the international reputation as the "golden state".[138] Generations of immigrants have been attracted by the California Dream. California farmers,[139] oil drillers,[140] movie makers,[141] airplane builders,[142] and "dot-com" entrepreneurs have each had their boom times in the decades after the Gold Rush.[143] The literary history of the Gold Rush is reflected in the works of Mark Twain (The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County), Bret Harte (A Millionaire of Rough-and-Ready), Joaquin Miller (Life Amongst the Modocs), and many others.[29][144] Included among the modern legacies of the California Gold Rush are the California state motto, "Eureka" ("I have found it"), Gold Rush images on the California State Seal,[145] and the state nickname, "The Golden State", as well as place names, such as Placer County, Rough and Ready, Placerville (formerly named "Dry Diggings" and then "Hangtown" during rush time), Whiskeytown, Drytown, Angels Camp, Happy Camp, and Sawyers Bar. The San Francisco 49ers National Football League team, and the similarly named athletic teams of California State University, Long Beach, are named for the prospectors of the California Gold Rush. In addition. the standard route shield of state highways in California is in the shape of a miner's spade to honor the California Gold Rush.[146][147] Today, aptly named State Route 49 travels through the Sierra Nevada foothills, connecting many Gold Rush-era towns such as Placerville, Auburn, Grass Valley, Nevada City, Coloma, Jackson, and Sonora.[148] This state highway also passes very near Columbia State Historic Park, a protected area encompassing the historic business district of the town of Columbia; the park has preserved many Gold Rush-era buildings, which are presently occupied by tourist-oriented businesses. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_gold_rush

Found!  Secret Gold Mine and Mining Camp Hidden in the Mountains
We recently stumbled upon this secret, hidden, abandoned mine and mining camp high up in the mountains. We explored one mine tunnel as well as the surface structures. A shed onsite contained an old vintage Silvertone radio/record player from 1940, a winch, a newspaper from 1957, and other artifacts. Inside the mine, we found more artifacts used by the miners, and we demonstrate in the video how those artifacts were used by the miners long ago. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration
The Shirley Letters from California Mines in 1851 52 Full Audiobook by Louise Amelia Knapp
SUBSCRIBE HERE https://goo.gl/uOq9vg TO OUR CHANNEL. FRESH CONTENT UPLOADED DAILY. The Shirley Letters from California Mines in 1851-52 Louise Amelia Knapp Smith CLAPPE (1819 - 1906) Louise Amelia Knapp Smith Clappe moved to California from Massachusetts during the Gold Rush of the mid-1800’s. During her travels, Louise was offered the opportunity to write for The Herald about her travel adventures. It was at this point that Louise chose the name “Shirley” as her pen name. Dame Shirley wrote a series of 23 letters to her sister Mary Jane (also known as Molly) in Massachusetts in 1851 and 1852. The “Shirley Letters”, as the collected whole later became known, gave true accounts of life in two gold mining camps on the Feather River in the 1850s. She described these camps in Northern California with vividness in portraying the wildness of Gold Rush life. The letters give detailed accounts of the vast and beautiful landscape that was the background to the hustle and bustle of mining life. Louise’s perspective as a woman provided a contrast to the typically all-male mining camps that she occupied. The letters were later published in the Pioneer, a California literary magazine based out of San Francisco.

The stages of living between these events: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, parenthood and senior are themselves natural and in accord with the needs of the species and most individuals. Many find their satisfaction in living this course and to these individuals I have little or nothing to say. Others though long for something more; something innate, genetic and seemingly calling. Adventure and change can give a degree of satisfaction and relief yet even these may seem too tame. To those who feel drawn to something beyond the entertainment and stimulation of senses I offer a walk along The Path of Wildness. Don't bother penciling the event in your schedule, preparing a pack with goodies and supplies or even inviting a friend along, for this experience is along the course of your first inclination and you must surely always go alone.

During her travels, Louise was offered the opportunity to write for The Herald about her travel adventures. It was at this point that Louise chose the name 'Shirley' as her pen name. Dame Shirley wrote a series of 23 letters to her sister Mary Jane (also known as Molly) in Massachusetts in 1851 and 1852. The 'Shirley Letters', as the collected whole later became known, gave true accounts of life in two gold mining camps on the Feather River in the 1850s. She described these camps in Northern California with vividness in portraying the wildness of Gold Rush life. The letters give detailed accounts of the vast and beautiful landscape that was the background to the hustle and bustle of mining life. Louise's perspective as a woman provided a contrast to the typically all-male mining camps that she occupied. The letters were later published in the Pioneer, a California literary magazine based out of San Francisco.

California Ghost Towns: Hornitos
http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/ca/hornitos.html Not born from the gold rush of '49, Hornitos was a strictly Mexican village built as if it had been transplanted from Mexico. But the town was never the same after it was invaded by the "undesirables" from neighboring mining camps. However, as the gold began to give out along the Mother Lode, the town started to return to its original form with the demand for law and order. The name of the infamous Mexican bandit, Joaquin Murieta, is still associated with Hornitos as he was almost captured there in the early 1850s, but escaped. Fortunately, much of the town can still be seen as it was during the days of the gold rush. It is located of off and west of highway 49 and west of Mariposa. Submitted by Henry Chenoweth. The town was founded by Mexicans who were run out of neighboring town of Quartzburg for the crime of being Mexicans. In its heyday Hornitos was a wide-open camp whose streets were lined with fandango halls, bars, and gambling dens. Today Hornitos lives on as one of the best preserved ghost towns in the Mother Lode with the ruins of the old Wells Fargo office, the stone Masonic Hall, the jailhouse, the store where the firm of D. Ghirardelli got its start in the 1850s and others.

Maybe it is gold. I might be rich! John Sutter: What is that? James Marshal: Look, look, look! Gold! John Sutter: Looks like gold, you are right. But maybe it is fake? James Marshall: How can we check? John Sutter: Let’s look in my encyclopedia. Narrator 2: They tried a few tests to see if it was REALLY gold. John Sutter: Where exactly did you find this? James Marshall: In the river near the mill. I bet there is gold all over that river. John Sutter: Maybe. James Marshal: WOW! I am going back right now. John Sutter: It is midnight! James Marshall: That doesn’t matter. John Sutter: Just wait for tomorrow morning. James Marshall: No! I’m going NOW! John Sutter: We should keep this a secret. James Marshall: The other workers already know. John Sutter: Let’s go talk with them. Act 2: Man 1: Did you hear about the gold? Man 2: Who found it? Man 3: James Marshall found it in the river.

Charles Smith: People keep finding more. Maybe we should start looking. Sam Brannan: What for? Why go do all of that work when they bring it to us to buy things anyway. If more people come to look for gold, more people will buy equipment from us. Charles Smith: Good Idea!

Gold Mining, Western Kenya
Gold Mining - About 3,000 youth risk life and limb in the booming but unregulated do-it-yourself trade, with a deep hole dug after every few homes. Groups of miners pay KSh. 4,000 a month to the owner of the land, and licensing tax to the local administration. They work day and night shifts in terrible conditions without proper safety gear, masks or equipment. Mines often flood, taking up to three days to pump clean. Sometimes the holes collapse, killing and suffocating the miners. Filmed in Ikolomani, Western Kenya, March 2012.

Scanner Plays 1849 Episode 1 - A Land Of Opportuinity
Buy the game here - http://www.somasim.com/1849/ About the game : 1849 is a city management game for tablets and PCs, set in the California Gold Rush. With all of the peril and possibility of the new frontier, 1849 challenges players to build a thriving mining empire in 19th century California. Inspired by games such as Caesar III, SimCity 4, and the Civilization series, 1849 strives to bring an immersive simulation game experience into the mobile age. The game contains 20 campaign scenarios that trace the development of the Gold Rush throughout northern California, from mining camps in the High Sierra to the bustling city of San Francisco. Each scenario map will challenge players with a unique set of starting conditions, victory goals, and obstacle events. A player's task in 1849 will be to build towns, populate them with workers, and then make sure that those workers are housed, fed, and entertained. Players will have to manage and coordinate extensive production networks to supply workers with their daily requirements, and engage in trade with nearby towns. 1849 will have over 50 resources that players can dig up, farm, refine or manufacture as they build more and more complex towns and cities. 1849 is set in a rich visual world. The buildings lining the streets of game towns are directly inspired by surviving Rush-era buildings in California's Gold Country and from photographs dating to the 1850s. The streets and workplaces pulse with activity as the workers of 1849's towns and cities -- all in period dress -- go about their daily business.
