    1830 · The Second Great Awakening
    Age 2
    Being a second spiritual and religious awakening, like the First Great Awakening, many Churches began to spring up from other denominations. Many people began to rapidly join the Baptist and Methodist congregations. Many converts to these religions believed that the Awakening was the precursor of a new millennial age.
    1830 · The Oregon Trail
    Age 2
    Many people started their 2,170-mile West trek to settle the land found by Louis and Clark. They used large-wheeled wagons to pack most of their belongings and were guided by trails that were made by the previous trappers and traders who walked the area. Over time the trail needed annual improvements to make the trip faster and safer. Most of Interstate 80 and 84 cover most of the ground that was the original trail.
    1848 · The California Gold Rush
    Age 20
    On January 24, 1848, gold was found at Sutter’s Mill in Coloma, California, which began the California gold rush. In December of that same year, U.S. President James Polk announced the news to Congress. The news of gold lured thousands of “forty-niners” seeking fortune to California during 1849. Approximately 300,000 people relocated to California from all over the world during the gold rush years. It is estimated that the mined gold was worth tens of billions in today’s U.S. dollars. 

    Name Meaning

    Irish (northern): Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Aodha or Mac Aoidh ‘son of Aodh’, an old personal name meaning ‘fire’. Thus, this name has the same origin as McKay , McGee , McCoy , and McHugh .
