Like some people are looking for a sunny place where it is mostly happy everywhere. The Spanish Explorers who discovered California were looking for gold. They found it in the 1800s gold rush.
California was discovered by a crew of Spanish explorers and their leader’s name was James W. Marshall. He and his crew came to California in 1848, trying to build a gold mine. At first they thought California was a island. When they actually found some gold more people came to California for the start of the 1848 gold rush. That is how California was discovered.
California was discovered in the 1800’s and was the 31st state to become a state.
California is the most populous state with about 37,691,912 people.
