1849 is a memorable year in American history. It put a little town known as San Francisco on the map and transformed it into a boomtown. Thousands of gold seekers from all over the world, colloquially known as forty-niners, came to the territory of California looking to stake their own claim. It’s because of this mad rush for gold that California has become known as a place where wealth can be found by sheer luck and audacity.
1849 follows the California Gold Rush as you start with a humble settlement and work to make it a booming, bustling center of trade. Hire workers, build a wide variety of buildings–ranging from saloons to humble workers’ houses–and even manage trade networks.
