This storyboard does not have a description.
The Oregon trail was a major route that people used to migrate west
They used canvas covered wagons pulled by oxen to pull their belongings. There were dangers such as cholera, a disease, or bad weather or wagon accidents. They couldn't take much with them because there wasn't room in the wagons. They mainly took food such as hard tack, coffee, bacon, rice, beans, and flour. They also took a few basic cooking utensils such as a coffee pot, some buckets, and an iron skillet.
They wanted to get more land and start farms to get wealthier and to be independent for the east. because they heard that the weather and soil was good for crops. Not because of fur trading.
