This 27 slide powerpoint tells about the history of the California Gold Rush of 1849. It discusses the 49ers, their journey, the first discovery of gold, entrepreneurs during that time like Levi Strauss, their struggle to find gold and eventually the end of the rush.
Also included is a hyperlink to a 2 minute YouTube video that demonstrates how to pan for gold.
