  • The Oregon Trail was the path the people would use when they moved to the western part of the United States.Most people traveled in wagons to carry all of their things.Since the travelers could not carry a lot in their wagon, they carried things such as food, cooking utensils, 3-4 hard sets of clothing per person, lighting, tents, bedding and tools such as a shovel. Native Americans helped the travelers. The main danger was cholera, wagon accidents, and bad whether.
  • Texas Revolution and Independence
  • If the trail never happened then the places that we know as Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Idaho and Utah would probably not be a part of the United States today. If we did not discover the trail the other states could be apart of Mexico, or even Canada.
  • If Mexico had won the Mexican/American war then the strength to hold off the united states and retain control of its northern territories suggest that mexico would have been a much stable, and stronger country.I
  • Mexican and American War
  • The Transcontinental railroad was made between 1863 and 1869.The first continental railroad stretched from the east coast to the west coast of the U.S. People, mail, and goods can now travel faster, safer, and cheaper by train. If the transcontinental railroad wasn’t a thing then people would still have to traveling long distances in long wagon trains that took months to reach california.
  • The Gold was first discovered by James Marshall. People came from all over to come and “Strike Gold” and become rich.
  • Gold Rush
  • The Mexican President wanted more than the government they had, so now Mexico ruled over other states. Many states did not want to be ruled over by Mexico, one of these states was Texas. In 1835 Texas called themselves independent, the people fought a lot over this. At the Battle of San Jacinto, the Mexican’s finally realized that Texas was Independent. All of this resulted in to the Mexican and American War. If this would not have happened we would not have the Mexican and American War.
  • No you are under our rule!!!!!
  • We are Independent
  • f, somehow, war was avoided in the annexations of Texas and California – or if the Californian revolt were quashed by Mexican authorities owing to a bewildering lack of support from the U.S.If not backed by the U.S then You would probably see the ones that are resulting in texas’ independance where americans involve themselves in the wars for independence on their own accord, and then sought annexation from the U.S.
  • Most of the first people there became rich. One way to dig for gold is by panning, this was more popular to use, until more complex ideas came along.When gold was found in one place, all of the minors would come over to mine in the place where the last piece of gold was found.If this would not have happened California's population would have gone down and the state would not be as successful as they are today.
