        205: The Westward Movement, Part I | Georgia Stories

        Georgia's economic development was quickly advanced by a gold rush during the 1830s. The first segment of this episode discusses the discovery and methods of that gold rush. The second briefly touches on the modern types of currency, but primarily focuses on the need and use of a local mint for the 1830s gold miners. The episode concludes by explaining how the gold rush led to greater demand for land in Georgia, demand that lead to multiple Native American tribes being sent on the Trail of Tears.
