On January 24, 1848 James Wilson Marshall found flakes of gold in the American River at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. Marshall was a carpenter from New Jersey working on a water-powered sawmill owned by John Sutter, a German-born Swiss man who founded the colony of New Switzerland, later to be known as Sacramento.

Eleanor Roosevelt had once stated “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the think which you think you cannot do.” An interpretation of this is that the only way growth and courage can increase is when the time is taken to perform at the best state possible.

Until the mid-seventeenth century, most of the Americans lived on the east coast, while Native Americans dwelled in the central North America and over west towards California. A majority of Americans believed that being white gave them the divine right to own and civilize the rest of the continent. They treated people of color like they were objects interfering with their land. The justification for their western expansion was coined as manifest destiny, and was bucked up from the United States ' constant feats. Though manifest destiny is known for its racial motivations and "pride" in the Americans ' country, it was made up by an economic core and the Americans were ready to sprawl through the regions.
Title Canadian history has had a rich tradition of witnessing emigrates arriving to Canada to explore a new way of life and to maintain their cultural identity. Currently the mass emigration of Syrian Muslims continues this legacy that was started in the late 18th century. One of the great mass migrations that Canada witnessed was during the late 18th century, when Catholic Scottish Highlanders emigrated to Prince Edward Island. These Scottish Highlanders left their ancestral highland homes out of desperation, fear of cultural elimination by the English and for new opportunities to maintain their cultural identity.

Gandhi 's six points have been inspirational to many people, whether it 's during a non-violent protest or just in general, these points have helped us all. Whether it 's the Delhi clothing burning or the salt march his followers have stayed believing he will bring them equality and justice.
