The Age of Gold
Gold Discovered in California (1848)
-- Many people in California figured gold was there, but it was James W. Marshall on January 24, 1848, who saw something shiny in Sutter Creek near Coloma, California. He discovered gold unexpectedly while overseeing the construction of a sawmill on the American River.

Read: The Age of Gold: The California Gold Rush and the New American Dream
-- The California Gold Rush inspired a new American dream—the dream of instant wealth, won by audacity and good luck. The discovery of gold on the American River in 1848 triggered the most astonishing mass movement of peoples since the Crusades. It drew fortune-seekers from the ends of the earth, accelerated America’s imperial expansion, and exacerbated the tensions that exploded in the Civil War. Impressive in its scholarship and overflowing with life, The Age of Gold is history in the grand traditions of Stephen Ambrose and David McCullough.

-- Gold. Everybody wants it. Wars have been fought for it. It literally makes our world go around. But best of all, it's everywhere just waiting to be found. People used to need to spend hours working with a gold pan and plain old dirt to find it. We thought that was too much work and not enough fun. Now, we've made it fun and easy for everyone, including kids, to find gold. In addition to a bucket, we provide a hand shovel to scoop dirt, water pail to pour in water, and tweezers, a magnet, suction bottle, and vials for collecting your findings!
