The Yukon Gold Rush
The Yukon Gold Rush

Everyone has heard of this remarkable Canadian story, but few know that 90,000 tried to get there; only 30,000 made it. The first winter residents were called the Sourdoughs: 1896-97. News got out in July 1897, but only a few Stampeders arrived at Dawson before freeze up. It would be May 1898 when most of the 30,000 arrived. The next July, 1899, the population of Dawson City dropped from 30,000 to 8,000. Why? Gold was discovered in Nome, Alaska. The Yukon Gold Rush was over!
