2. American West - The Oregon Trail
Information on the history of the oregon trail.
The National Cowboy Hall of Fame, Oklahoma City, OK The first Europeans to see the trans-Mississippi West were the mountain men, trappers, and the maritime explorers along the west coast. In Canada, the Hudson's Bay Company fur frontier was approaching the Columbia River basin. In 1812 John Jacob Astor established Astoria at the mouth of the Columbia in a countermove and sent Robert Stuart overland to carry dispatches east. Stuart found South Pass by following a Crow Indian Trail. Only 7,000 feet above sea level, with easy gradients. South Pass has an attractive geographic proximity to the upper reaches of the Platte River. Both were determining factors in the routing of the Oregon trail. The early frontiersmen found the passes, crossed the great rivers, and defined the vast reaches of the western interior. From the beginning these explorers contributed to a growing campaign to make the Oregon Country a part of either the United States or Great Britain according to their own sometimes confused loyalties. Economic depressions in 1837 and 1841 frustrated farmers and businessmen alike. The collapse of the international fur trade in 1839 intensified the hard times, and concerns of British domination of the Northwest grew. At the same time, eastern churches saw the American Indians of the Oregon Country as ready candidates for European ideas of civilization. Churches formed ardent missionary societies to create an active appetite for Christianity. In 1836 Marcus Whitman and his new wife, Narcissa, along with Henry and Eliza Spalding, headed for Oregon as missionaries. The letters they sent home publicized the opportunities and advantages of Oregon. Many people for many reasons had become interested in Oregon, but it was not until 1841 that the first group with serious intent to emigrate left the banks of the Missouri river and headed west. In 1843, nearly 1,000 completed the trip - an omen of the multitudes to follow.

    THE oregon trail is part of american history and folklore that has grown intomythical proportions with its own heros, villains, triumphs, and tragedies.
    CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES TIME LINE OREGON TRAIL MAP OTHER RESOURCES ... IN SEARCH OF THE OREGON TRAIL HOME PAGE This TEACHERS GUIDE provides background material and suggested activities that can complement viewing IN SEARCH OF THE OREGON TRAIL in the classroom. The documentary introduces several important topics students need to think about before they can begin to understand the history of THE OREGON TRAIL. Students can still relate to many of these topics because the story of THE OREGON TRAIL never really ended. The same hopes, needs, and problems motivating the settlers in the 19th century still shape the American West today. IN SEARCH OF THE OREGON TRAIL is more than the remarkable story of several hundred thousand emigrants crossing the American West looking for a new life. It's also the story of the native peoples they found there and the terrible consequences of diseases brought by the pioneers and the settlers' pursuit for land. It's the story of new believers searching for a promised land where they could escape religious persecution. And it's the story of fortunes made, lost, and never gained by prospectors and opportunists. THE OREGON TRAIL is part of American history and folklore that has grown into mythical proportions with its own heros, villains, triumphs, and tragedies. Much of the history is based on fact, but as much or more originates from myth and legend. IN SEARCH OF THE OREGON TRAIL examines the truth and exposes the myth about America's journey West.

    Wetward Ho
    contributed by Lu Hickey From 1860 to 1862, Pony Express riders carried mail n relays from St. Joseph, MO to Sacramento, CA. Riders were out of "St. Joe" had only a brief gallop to the wide Missouri River where ferry boats conveyed them over the river. From St. Joseph the Pony Express followed the Oregon-California trail across northeast Kansas territory then ran north to the Platte river in Nebraska and west to Sacramento, California. The Kansas section of the route had 11 stations. The original station in Marysville still stands. Relay stations were established 15-20 miles apart where riders would change horses. The Oregon Trail was known by many names, The Mormon Trail, the Platte Trail and the California Trail, as these were the most common trails used by the diverse settlers moving west to attempt to tame the west, the Indians, and the new frontier. The Oregon Trail was used by the Army, and stagecoaches and the Pony Express followed part of the trail. In 1830, William Sublette took the firs wagons along the route to the rocky Mountains. By the middle of the 1840s, traffic on the Oregon Trail was tremendous and the California gold rush increased its use even more in 1849 and 1850.
