Sacramento was built in 1948 on property held by Captain James Sutter. This was the same year James Marshall discovered gold in the South Fork of the American River at Sutter's Mill. Sacramento flourished as a supply town for the '49ers that came to the area to pan for gold. Sacramento became the state capital in 1854, four years after California was admitted to the Union. The railroad connected California to the rest of the country in 1856, and the Pony Express had a terminus there. Farming and agricultural roots were set down in the fertile soil, and Sacramento became, and still is, an important hub for highway, rail, and river travel. A deep-water channel connects Sacramento to San Francisco Bay, making Sacramento a major inland port. Military installations and aviation industries contribute to the economy. Government in action can be seen every day in the state's capital.
