New England to Gold Rush California
On July 29, 1849, two young school teachers were married in Peacham and began alternating entries in a journal, a routine they maintained for the next five years. Their accounts not only capture Alfred's involvement in the California Gold Rush and the couple's subsequent life in San francisco; they also touch on many general themes and events of the time, including political struggles over slavery, migration out of New England, temperance, the value of education, and much more.
