Many people said he thought of himself as a merchant, rather than a digger because he bought over 800 pounds of tobacco and spirits. The Eureka stockade came about when the gold diggers or workers, didn’t agree with the licences that the government endorsed. The diggers noticed the miners’ licences were there to tax them, as the fees had to be paid whether gold was found or not. It was not fair to diggers that weren’t successful. The rebellion commenced in 1854, with Peter Lalor’s help.
News traveled fast and far, prospectors came from around the world to try their hand in panning gold. Gold mining had reached its peak by 1852. More than $80 million in gold had been pulled from mines (Encyclopedia.com, 2015). Even though the gold rush was not profitable for all who came to California, the gold rush reshaped the demographics of California because people from Asia and other parts of the world traveled to California and the population rose. In 1848, James Marshall discovered gold while constructing a mill for John Sutter (Encyclopedia.com, 2015).

As hemp continued being used for various reasons, paper, rope, fuel, etc., many major lumber companies began looking for new ways to increase profit. Although some may argue that the Marihuana Tax Act was the result of greed by Heart and his paper company, as they wanted to be able to monopolize the areas in which hemp was being used, even this argument can be used as an example of cultural bias against Mexicans during the 1930s. Prior to the implementation of the tax act, Hearst lost 800,000 acres of timberland to Pancho Villa, a Mexican activist, and Villa’s army of men.. This, coupled with Hearst’s openly expressed hatred towards immigrants, is what pushed him to go against the hemp industry and favor the Marihuana Tax

He got his riches by owning drug stores and selling over the counter alcohol. He didnt work for his money, but he did work for his money when he was employed by Cody.

In the late 1800’s Imperialism had begun because the Europeans were greedy for power. They would conquer other small weak nations for many reasons such as a source of raw material, gaining more territory, and gaining control of people and using them as cheap laborers. Spain once was a great nation governing over the Philippines, Guam, Cuba, and Puerto Rico. During this time, the Philippines and Cuba were the only ones fighting for freedom and independence out of the four countries under the control of Spain. Later on, Rumors had spread to the US that the Spanish were being cruel to the Cubans and the Philippines.
Western civilization came about after the blending and mixing of various cultures that spread from Ancient Greece and Rome throughout Europe and later on America. As Western Civilization spread, the areas that have been influenced by this is often called The West. As of today, Greek and Romans ideas of philosophy, literature, mathematics, astronomy and government are still present. The ideas of government that were developed by Greeks and Romans served as a basis for the United States’ government today. In the 400s B.C., Greece began to implement direct democracy and in 509 B.C., Romans developed representative government.
Gold has always been symbolic of money, and is used constantly by Fitzgerald to show the riches of East and West egg. However, these riches are not entirely made from legal practices, for example Gatsby who drives a “yellow car”, has ties with the Bootlegging industry. He not only has alcohol at his parties, but it is revealed that he is wealthy due to his Bootlegging business. His yellow car, (a result of corrupt money), also ends up killing Myrtle Wilson leading to the death of Gatsby and George Wilson. This shows how corruptness will always end badly.
The first Japanese Americans emigrated to the U.S. mostly as the second or third sons of the family in search of a new economic future similar to other immigrants. Primogeniture was still in practice in the late 1800’s, so the eldest son inherited the entire estate, leaving the other sons at the mercy of their own resourcefulness. These fortune seekers settled along the western states as farmers and farm laborers amid high anti-Chinese sentiment. They’re willingness to work for lower wages in poor conditions created a split labor market and as a result, they endured extreme hostility and physical attacks from union members representing the manufacturing and service industries. They experienced legal discrimination in the forms of denial of citizenship and denial of land ownership as non-whites.
Gold was discovered in California in the year of 1948. This discovery prompted many people to pack up and journey to the “Golden Mountains” in hopes of becoming rich. Although everyone was excited because of the gold, the economy was affected in other indirect manners as well. While many people became filthy rich and were living the dream, many did not. But it was the shortage of jobs in other areas that presented major opportunities.
