History comes alive
Early emigrants and the 1849 Gold Rush accelerated the western settlement of the United States. Soon thereafter silver was discovered in the Comstock Lode in 1859, igniting the silver rush, creating Virginia City, helping to win the Civil War, statehood for Nevada and bringing new growth to the American frontier. Larger-than-life characters shaped our Western heritage. Comstock Characters brings the past to life through live reenactments with words and actions of these inspiring individuals.
