you are the smartest person i ever known so im asking you. what does rumor mean. it was in our story. but what does rumor have to do with the gold rush?
Rumor is information that may or not be true. It is spread from one person to others.
The rumors about the gold rush usually told about all the people who got rich by finding gold.
Two of my ancestors went to the California gold rush. One of them got enough gold to return to Indiana and buy a farm.
