Storyboard Text

  • We're moving west for a multitude of reasons.
  • To start off, The Homestead Act of 1862 allows us to own our own property
  • And I'm looking to earn more money than I would in the east.
  • I'm looking to help educate others in the west.
  • We face a lot of hardships on this journey. Crossing rivers unsafely can result in deaths, loss of food, and loss of transportation
  • We also face extremely harsh weather. From relentless rain, savage snowstorms, and scorching summers.
  • Women left behind a very important legacy when it comes to the west.
  • The freedoms and equalities that women received in the west would make the way for equality across America and motivate women to fight for their freedoms.
