Chapter 18 Identities Gold Rush The discovery of gold in the California territory sparked the California Gold Rush of 1848. The huge influx of migrants from the East overwhelmed the small Californian government, which subsequently skipped the usual territory status to expedite its admission into the Union. However, because California was a free state, Southerners decried the stat’s lonesome admission into the union, which would upset the delicate balance of slave and free states in the Senate. Treaty of Wanghia The Treaty of Wanghia was the first treaty between China and America. The treaty would extend trade between the two countries, and gave the US the most favored nation status. The treaty established five ports in which Americans could buy land, trade, learn Chinese, and erect churches and hospitals. Treaty of Kanagawa The Treaty of Kanagawa was the first treaty between Japan and America. The treaty was signed at gunpoint, and ended the Tokugawa government policy of isolationism, the treaty would open two ports to American commerce: Shimoda and Hakodate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
