The discovery of gold

eureka

It is a story familiar to anyone who grew up in the land between California’s Pacific shoreline and the rugged Sierra Nevada. On January 24, 1848, James Marshall spotted something glimmering in the American River. Then found more. Then even more. The Gold Rush was on.

“Eureka” would appear on California’s first Great Seal and become the state’s official motto: it is a made-up word, that embodies adventure, amazement, and, of course, discovery.

Becoming the golden state

Statehood

Disagreements over the territory and slavery status of California were settled in the Compromise of 1850. The Compromise established California as a state free of slavery.

Then, on September 9th, 1850, California joined the Union.

The Golden State’s rich history hasalways been shaped by people of every ethnic background who traveled here seeking economic opportunity, social freedom, and a higher quality of life.
