Gold Rush program
Of the 85,000 men who headed for California during the 1849 Gold Rush, one-fourth were foreigners who contended not only with harsh conditions of the wilderness, but with hatred and prejudice. Counted among these, were Chinese immigrants who had mortgaged their futures and left all behind. The American West was built with the sweat and blood of such rugged people. On Monday, June 25 at 11 a.m., the Seaford Library will host a special program presented by the Delaware Humanities Forum, that will bring one such character to life.
