What do I capitalize? Which is correct in this sentence: California Gold Rush or California gold rush? Please support with the grammatical rule.

The decline of whaling in America began with the California gold rush in 1849.


    Most sources capitalize California Gold Rush because it's a specific event in U.S. history, like the Civil War, Reconstruction, and Great Depression.

    See #4 -- historical events

    What do you think -- capitals or not?
