This document collection examines the ways in which events in California resonated throughout the Pacific Ocean, how different communities around the Pacific participated in and changed as a result of California's gold rush, and offers a perspective on the "Pacific World" as a place of connections, migration, and transits. Students are guided through their analysis of the primary sources with an author-provided learning objective, central question, and historical context.
