The state of California is such a representative place of the US that seems incredible the fact that just 165 years ago it became part of the country. There are so many things to be thankful about California; the people, places, culture, and so much more. Sani Dental Group wants to use the opportunity of this day to pay tribute to The Golden State remembering some of its history and the things that it has contributed to the world.
A Little Bit of History
In 1848, Mexico and the US signed an agreement to finish the Mexican-American War that had started two years before; and as a part of it, Mexico ceded land in the southwest to the US. The ceded territory became California, but it did not happen right away. In 1849, California sought admission to the Union as a free state. After many debates, the bill to approve California’s application was passed and it turned into the 35th state.
Since then, California proved to be a rich land with vast resources. Around that time, gold was discovered along the American River in Sacramento, this caused one of the largest migrations in the world; in two years, the population grew from 14,000 to 223,000 in what was called “The Gold Rush”. Even when that stage ended, people continued migrating to California and it became a major farming state with plenty of land for growing all sorts of crops.
By the early 1900’s, the industry of movies discovered that California was a great place for filming because it was close to a wide variety of settings like the beach, mountains, and desert. Many major motion pictures companies set up shop in Hollywood, a small town outside Los Angeles, and it soon became the center of the filmmaking industry in the United States.
California is now an icon of style, comfort, and progress; Sani Dental Group celebrates this day because we have attended to a big number of patients from this state, and it has been a lovely experience every time. There’s so much going on with California that we’re sure you don’t know a lot of things about it.
