Why do we have to go west, mother?
My dears, we need to head to the Oregon Trail. We will speak later just hurry and help your father with the supplies.
Are you okay, sister? You look uneasy
I hope the oxen could make it through
The trail leads that way
All gone. It seems like everyone who moved west had the same idea as us. Don't worry dear, lets settle down and wait next week.
Did you buy some seeds for our new farm at the market, dear?
The Oregon Trail was a route for people moving to the west of the United States.
It was a dangerous journey since they could only take very little supplies and a sickness called cholera that killed many pioneer. Thankfully some natives helped them on their trip. They took wagons called “Prairie Schooners” pull by oxen which also was problem when they reached the rocky mountains.
Americans moved to the west to settle down and have good farms. Because so many Americans went West to Oregon and created homes and farms, the United States was able to claim that land and it eventually became a state. Fulfilling the idea that America would span from coast to coast.
