Why was the early West considered a "crossroads of culture"? Mexico originally owned the land, so the cultures of Americans, Mexicans, and Native Americans were all present in the West. The California Gold Rush brought in people from all over the world, which resulted in cultural diffusion among the settlers there. California was known to accept many forms of religion and ethnicities, so people from different cultures migrated there to start new lives. Those settlers who brought slaves with them to the West created cultural interactions between Native Americans, African Americans, and themselves.
B is "The California Gold Rush brought in people from all over the world, which resulted in cultural diffusion among the settlers there." C is "California was known to accept many forms of religion and ethnicities, so people from different cultures migrated there to start new lives." right?
yes sir! :)
what's your reasoning for either B or C?
I thought it was B, because everyone heard about the gold and came to look for it...
c-I dont even know, it sounds like an accurate-ish answer lol
So, i would like to believe it's B.
is it c? I feel like you are hesitating
B is the better answer because gold did attract a wide variety of people, which created a melting pot, so to speak C is not true unfortunately. A lot of people were hostile towards foreigners, so acceptance didn't come easy
ok, so I was right the first time... YAYYY! thanks! :)
n 1846, the population of San Francisco, California, was only 200. By 1852, the city's population was 36,000. Which contributed the most to San Francisco's population change? The Gold Rush<< Yes, right?? The Mexican-American War The Monroe Doctrine The Trail of Tears @jim_thompson5910
yep it made SF the hub of the region (since it was a port city) so it could bring in people, tools, etc from all over the world
so I was right, yes? thanks!! :)
