California is nicknamed "The Golden State," because of the discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848 and the "gold rush" of immigrants the following year (the so-called 49-ers). California became the 31st state on September 9th, 1850.

Our series of US geography videos "Visit the 50 States," gives you a little history and interesting facts about each state. For every state, you'll learn when it entered the Union, what's its motto, how did it get its nickname, and see what the flag, seal, and state capitol building all look like. We'll find the state capital on the map! There's also fun trivia - do you know the state tree, flower, and bird? Watch and find out!
