The Iron Lady
Margaret Thatcher was one of the most important political figures of the 20th Century. She was a British politician. Daughter of a grocer, she went on to become the leader of the conservative party from 1975 to 1990. She was the first Female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and served from 1979 to 1990. She was known as the "Iron Lady". She led Britain in the Falklands war. During her tenure she reshaped almost every aspect of British politics, reviving the economy, reforming outdated institutions, and reinvigorating the nation's foreign policy. Watch here.
The Gold Rush
All told, the news of gold brought some 300,000 people to California from the rest of the United States and abroad. Of the 300,000, approximately half arrived by sea and half came from the east overland on the California Trail and the Gila River trail.
The gold-seekers, called "forty-niners" (as a reference to 1849), often faced substantial hardships on the trip. While most of the newly arrived were Americans, the Gold Rush attracted tens of thousands from Latin America, Europe, Australia, and China. At first, the gold nuggets could be picked up off the ground. Later, gold was recovered from streams and riverbeds using simple techniques, such as panning. Watch here.

"I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel;
'As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal; LET THE HERO, BORN OF WOMAN, crush the serpent with his heel, Since God is marching on."
