In 1848 gold was discovered at John Sutter’s mill in northern California. The next year thousands of “49ers” headed west, hoping to strike it rich in the gold fields. “Buckeye 49ers” tells the stories of those who went from southeastern Ohio. The accounts come directly from their diaries and letters home. They detail the men’s experiences en route, some going by sea, others as parts of wagon trains, and in the California “diggings.”
