Mark Twain observed that to write of the gold rush period and ignore its carnage would be like writing of Mormonism without referring to polygamy. A good example is the story of a mob in one California gold camp that hanged a man for horse stealing.MoreMark Twain observed that to write of the gold rush period and ignore its carnage would be like writing of Mormonism without referring to polygamy.

A good example is the story of a mob in one California gold camp that hanged a man for horse stealing. It was found after the handing that the man was innocent. The vigilante mob sent a messenger to break the news to the victims widow. We hanged him for stealing a horse, he told her, but come to find out, he didnt do it, so I guess the jokes on us.

All gold camps werent so callous, but most of them were exciting.
