It began with two small kernels of gold. They had been found on John Sutter's land in central California. But Sutter had no idea that those two shiny bits of metal would set off one of the wildest mass movements of people in world history. From the farms, small towns and cities of the East, hundreds of thousands of fortune-seekers flocked to California to find their fortunes. A few did. Most failed. But they changed the face of America forever.
