What happened to the French Argonauts who traveled to California? The large numbers of French Argonauts who came to California in response to the gold discoveries consisted of varied groups—members of several California companies and local companies; independent voyagers; veterans of the Garde Mobile; and lingotiers. Few of these remained in California. In fact, after a wide range of experiences and mixed success and failure, most of them returned to France. The French Argonauts were not greeted back home by cheering crowds. Most first-person accounts pay little attention to the return home.
