The gold Rush was a violent time in our history . All miners had one goal it was to get gold , and if you had hundreds of thousands of miners trying to achieve that goal then of course there will be trouble . No doubt one miner would kill another for gold .
Befor the gold rush there was about 14,000 non native Americans living in California. During 1848 and 1849 more than 90,000 arrived to hunt for gold.
