Answer 1


March 13th, 1840

we've begun heading west, getting all of our food and essential resources together in the wagon. its a good thing my brother is a doctor, snake bites and broken limbs have been reported from travelers before us.

our religion isn't practiced here, as Mormons we need to be in a new area in the west as others have said.

April 2nd, 1840

today was the first wound besides thrist and hunger we've encountered. my young niece fell out of the wagon on one of our stops, breaking her arm we'd assume. her father is helping her but we need to get going before it gets too hot.

April 14th, 1840

we've come across a little townie settlement, Fort Laramie. we've restocked our resources and we'll be on our way again soon. my wife is going tk have another baby soon and we don't know what we'll do if the baby is ready to come whe we are in an area we can't stop at.

may 6th, 1840

my pregnant wife and young niece have been bitten by a snake with unknown origins. we don't know how this will effect their health or the baby.

may 8th, 1840

two members of our wagon group have passed away, my wife and my young niece. my brother who is a doctor couldn't help them anymore, leaving only me, him, his wife, and my son.

June 17th, 1840

today we are planning to cross a river by cocking and boarding the wagon, but I am scared to go because we don't have a lot of food to spare, and if any is lost we'll starve.

June 18th, 1840

we lost our entire wagon in the river, and my doctor brother drowned to death. we've been walking for about an hour but since his wife is newly pregnant, its hard for her to walk.

June 23rd, 1840

after a few days of walking we've paid money to ride in a wagon with a few other people, a mother and father with a baby and a daughter.

Answer 2

The Oregon Trail was a roughly 2,000-mile route from Independence, Missouri, to Oregon City, Oregon, which was used by hundreds of thousands of American pioneers in the mid-1800s to emigrate west. The trail was arduous and snaked through Missouri and present-day Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho and finally into Oregon. Without the Oregon Trail and the passing of the Oregon Donation Land Act in 1850, which encouraged settlement in the Oregon Territory, I would have been slower to settle the American West in the 19th century.
