What is 1849?

The year is 1849, and gold has just been discovered in California. You decide to head out west, to seek fame and wealth in the approaching Gold Rush.

Will you strike gold and become an overnight mining magnate? Or will you build your fortune bit by bit by supplying 49ers with pickaxes and blue jeans?

There's more opportunity here than mere gold dust or the occasional riverbed nugget. The Gold Rush of 1849 transformed California from provincial backwater into an economic powerhouse.

Are you ready to forge a new state with this ragtag group of prospectors and pioneers?
