The California gold rush began after James W. Marshall discovered gold at Sutters Mill in Colma California. Around 300,00 people came to California in search of gold. The Gold Rush contributed to the starting of the Civil War because it caused a bigger influx of people within the territory of California. It provoked the issue of slavery and statehood even more, causing deeper problems within Congress.
