Saturday, Jan 7, 2012 - 1:30 PM    "California's Gold Country" Within 5 years of the initial strike, over 50 billion dollars worth of gold was taken out of the hills near Sacramento, California. Burt takes us to the exact spot where the gold was found and explains how that gold funded The War Between the States, built the transcontinental railroad, and brought California into the Union. We tour Old Sacramento, visit the only remaining rural Chinese village in the United States, and find out why The Pony Express only lasted 18 months. D
