Everything changed in California and THE WEST.  Every year there is a different version of the same story.  It was not the first gold discovered in the west but it is the discovery credited with starting The Gold Rush which did change everything.

As you said, not the first (the first was almost ten years earlier in Southern California), but it was the catalyst that began the great expansion to the western frontier.
