Join the VMHC Education team for our upcoming webinar “Letters from a '49er: Maben & the Search for California Gold.” (Recommended for Upper Elementary Students & Above)

In 1849, John Robertson Maben traveled to California in search of gold. In a series of thirteen letters, Maben describes his travels to his wife, Sarah. These letters are especially vivid as Maben was witness to events both momentous and mundane. In this program, students will join Maben on his journey, interpreting his letters and tracing his travels on a nineteenth-century map.

This program is part of our Primary Source of the Month student webinar series. All programs are held from 10:00am to 10:45am.
