16 The Donner Party
17 The Donner Party showed the danger of unprepared immigrants Near this spot stood the Breen cabin of the party of emigrants who started for California from Springfield, Illinois, in April 1846, under the leadership of Captain George Donner. Delays occurred and when the party reached this locality on October 29, the Truckee Pass emigrant road was concealed by snow. The height of the shaft of the monument indicates the depth of the show, which was twenty-two feet. After futile efforts to cross the summit, the party was compelled to encamp for the winter. The Graves cabin was situated about three-quarters of a mile to the eastward, the Murphy cabin about two hundred yards southwest of the monument, and the Donner tents were at the head of Alder creek. Ninety people were in the party and forty-two perished, most of them from starvation and exposure. In commemoration of the pioneers who crossed the plains to settle in California Monument erected under the auspices of the native sons and the native daughters of the golden west Monument dedicated June 6, 1918

Smith and his followers had moved several times before building this temple at Nauvoo. Shortly thereafter, Smith was arrested; an anti-mormon mob lynched him while he was in jail, and this temple was burned.

39 Portion of Polk s inaugural speech The Republic of Texas has made known her desire to come into our Union, to form a part of our Confederacy and enjoy with us the blessings of liberty secured and guaranteed by our Constitution. Texas was once a part of our country was unwisely ceded away to a foreign power is now independent, and possesses an undoubted right to dispose of a part or the whole of her territory and to merge her sovereignty as a separate and independent state in ours. I congratulate my country that by an act of the late Congress of the United States the assent of this Government has been given to the reunion, and it only remains for the two countries to agree upon the terms to consummate an object so important to both. I regard the question of annexation as belonging exclusively to the United States and Texas.

55 THE GADSDEN PURCHASE U.S. Secretary of War Jefferson Davis sent James Gadsden to negotiate with Mexican ruler Santa Anna for the land. Davis valued it, as others did, as the perfect tract for construction of a southern transcontinental railroad. The railroad line would connect western territories to the east and north, greatly increasing the accessibility of these new lands. The deal was culminated on December 30, The treaty settled the dispute over the exact location of the Mexican border west of El Paso, Texas, giving the U.S. claim to approximately 29,000 square miles of land in what is now southern New Mexico and Arizona, for the price of $10 million.

60 sailing around South America took 6 months at sea Across the continent, 2,000 miles of hardship Ways Ways to to the the Goldfields Fields By ship via Panama, the quickest but deadliest disease ridden route
61 Chinese men labor for white California miners Before 1850, there were fewer than 1,000 Chinese in the U.S.; by 1852 there were 20,000 in California alone. Indentured to merchants who paid their passage and expected to have the cost repaid through their labor. These immigrants soon learned that because they had to pay the contractors for their living costs, their debt increased rather than decreased. Other workers resented their working in the mines for less than $1 a day. In the 1850s state laws were passed attempting to restrict further immigration from China.
62 African Americans in gold fields African Americans in the gold fields "washing for gold." The gold rush brought substantial numbers of them to California; the population of African Americans jumped from a handful before 1850 to 4000 in Originally brought as slaves by southern masters to work the mines. Theoretically they became free in 1850 after statehood if they had not been taken back to the South by their owners; but the use of slaves in the gold fields persisted. During the 1850s, they were joined by an increasing number of free African Americans.
63 Gold Rush Effects Very few get rich Challenges facing migrants: Conflict with Indians - thousands of Native Americans killed, survivors work on farms
64 "Many, very many, that come here meet with bad success & thousands will leave their bones here. Others will lose their health, contract diseases that they will carry to their graves with them. Some will have to beg their way home, & probably one half that come here will never make enough to carry them back. But this does not alter the fact about the gold being plenty here, but shows what a poor frail being man is, how liable to disappointments, disease & death. There is a good deal of sin & wickedness going on here, Stealing, lying, Swearing, Drinking, Gambling & murdering. There is a great deal of gambling carried on here. Almost every public House is a place for Gambling, & this appears to be the greatest evil that prevails here. Men make & lose thousands in a night, & frequently small boys will go up & bet $5 or 10 ($115-$230) -- & if they lose all, go the next day & dig more. We are trying to get laws here to regulate things but it will be very difficult to get them executed (Shufelt) 1849 Prices in 2004 dollars Flour per barrel Cheese per pound 1..potatoes 2.onions per pound bread per pound $ $ $ $35.00 $17.25
