The gold rush was a very important event for California. It had a huge impact on the environment, made populations sky rocket, and made California the 31st state. There was an upside-down law and order system, and it was very racist and unfair. The populations increased very quickly due to the gold rush. The prices of food were very high due to the population. Prices went up as demand increased. Still, the gold rush is one of the most important reasons we are a state today.
