United States History



Red Hot Chili Pepper State
California, whose capital is either Sacramento, Los Angeles, or San Francisco, is the home of Hollywood.  Many people rushed out there in 1849 for the great "Gold Rush".  Apparently, 49 miners struck gold - hence the name of the San Francisco 49ers.  Scientists expect California, or "Cali", to sink into the Pacific Ocean by 2015.  California, abbreviated CA, has two parts: NoCal and SoCal which stand for Northern California and Southern California.
