Who were the first women who came to California, and who was already here?
Legendary Native, Spanish, American and Immigrant women, who had made their own way, in a time where women were not so welcome to do so. Rarely heard of women and it was also their stories that played a part in shaping the future of the United States, in one way or another, and I want you to know their names. The Confidence Queen of the California Gold Mines, and Golden State’s Whore Mistress Extraordinaire holds a party at her home that will lead to a socialite dispute that will change the future of the Wild West ways forever in the then, lawless city of San Francisco.
This is a true story, from America’s Largest Migration, The Gold Rush.
