DIGGIN' FOR GOLD
The arrival of the Spanish colonists—participants in the Atlantic slave trade and owners of both
Indian and African slaves—introduced such concepts as chattel slavery and involuntary servitude
to the area. Anglo settlers from the Southern and Eastern United States brought centuries of
experience with slavery to California. Many free and enslaved people of African ancestry were
part of the California Gold Rush, and many were able to buy their freedom and freedom for their
families, primarily in the South, with the gold they found.
In this new game, you'll have to spend time and money in the Banker Dave Gold Mine. The goal is
to locate the Mother Load hidden among the rocky terrain. If you are lucky enough to find the gold
nugget, you will also receive a special prize!
Each choice will cost you $5.00 so choose wisely!
