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.
