Face-a-day, The Prospector

 
Did you know that people still pan for gold in California? Some still find gold today, but not that much.


 
My son's school had a "panning for gold day" and had guys dress up as John Sutter and James W. Marshall. James W. Marshall found gold at Sutter's mill. Sutter wanted to keep it a secret, but you know people can't keep secrets. Thus was the beginning of the gold rush.
