Good as Gold

All Aboard the Meme Express – Saturday, January 24, 2009

On January 24, 1856, prospector James W. Marshall (pictured above) found a nugget of gold in Northern California. The historic spot was located at Sutter’s Mill, a sawmill in Coloma, California. Thus began the famous Gold Rush.

Folks have journeyed west to seek their fortunes ever since.
