JERSEY GOLD: New Jersey and the 1849 California Gold Rush
Date(s): October 3, 2017 at 6:30pm - 9:00pm
Location: New Jersey Historical Society
At the midpoint of the 19th century the quest for gold suddenly captured the imaginations and dominated the conversations of millions, all thanks to its discovery at Sutter's Mill by New Jersey native James W. Marshall. The history of the California Gold Rush that followed is filled with stories of New Jerseyans who made the trek and of others left behind.
Plan to join us next Tuesday, October 3, at 6:30 pm, for a talk by Margaret Casterline Bowen, co-author of a new book on the Newark Overland Company and the fortunes made and lost in the 1849 Gold Rush.
