Some could not buy food so they would steal or kill for it. Also, so much disease was spread around, which would cause deaths. Also other types of crimes were robberies, kidnappings and fires. Eventually people would just leave empty handed, which they had no dream of doing(“California Gold Rush”). There were many negatives to the gold rush, but also positives, like a better economy.
The California gold rush began on January 24, 1848, in the Sacramento Valley. The first sight of gold nuggets found during the Gold Rush was located in the American River, by James W. Marshall. After the news of the gold became known the tidings spread quickly. Information about Jame's discovery caused thousands of immigrants to migrate, changing the nation forever. Citizens living in California were especially provoked with this, due to their homes being intruded on.
Though I will summarize most of the unethical issues with gold mining, many of the same unethical issues apply to most mining. Because it creates an enormous amount of toxic waste and is considered as one of the most environmentally destructive forms of mining, gold mining cause more than a few issues with the ecosystem. Gold mining is the leading cause of manmade global mercury pollution. Many gold mines dump their toxic waste directly in natural water bodies. When one considers that to mine gold for a 0.333 ounce ring equates to 20 tons of toxic waste, the amounts of toxic waste is massive.
It affects not only the young, but the senior citizens as well. Many people do not qualify for the already present government health care programs such as Medicaid and Medicare. Changes need to be made immediately in order for all Americans to be able to afford insurance. These situations are causing the American public unneeded emotional stress. The lack of medical care is causing many deaths that could have been evaded with the proper medical attention.
To add to this, the republicans made it worse by the high tarrifs put up to protect America industries. This led to make Europe poorer so still it could not afford the American prices. The effects were felt were all through America. Almost half of the Americans were becoming very desperate.

If one could not set up a sterile environment in the home, they were forced to go to the hospital. In this time, people were afraid of the hospital, as it was not clean and many died from secondary infections when they went in. Many hid their sick loved ones which only led to more infections.
The California Gold Rush The California Gold Rush of 1849 is one of the most interesting and exiting events of the United States. From the wild stories of men striking it big, to the heart wrenching tales of people losing everything, these are what make it so alluring. There are many aspects of the California Gold Rush; effects on California; individual stories of struggle; and effects on the United States as a young country looking for stability. San Francisco was a small town of a few hundred people in 1840, but by 1850 it was a huge city whose economy was injected with gold money. This rapid growth and development was brought on by an accidental discovery by James Marshall.
There are a lot of things wrong with illegal immigration and I hope to let you know some of my opinions on the issue over the next few pages. I think that since the beginning of our county we have based a lot of things on immigrants and how they can rally help us out by adding more workers to the workforce. If you have more people working then you can get a lot more done in a short amount of time. But this has all gone really wrong and today we have too many people who don’t have any respect for people already living here in the US and then
So, immigrants desperate for work would often be hired at large numbers alongside of white American born citizens. It was the vast number of immigrant workers that made the factories thrive. Over time American citizens began to despise the immigrants because the immigrants took away jobs, made their cities vastly overcrowded, and lived by different social and religious standards. Immigration reforms were demanded and, eventually, the government began to restrict who could come into the
Also, there was much more available land to mine in, in the California gold rush so anyone who came to the Klondike gold rush from far away was beat by the people that were already there. In both gold rushes, miners were also very hostile about their land. If anyone was caught on someone else’s land than they would be forced off or even get shot by the landowner. The second reason of why the Klondike gold rush was harder is because of the geography and the topography of the Yukon Territory. The Klondike gold rush took place in the Yukon Territory,(world book page344), which is much farther up north than California.
