Description

Idaho State University's "The Oregon Trail" Web site tells the story of the great westward migration of the 19th century. This page features extracts from the diaries and journals of Narcissa Whitman, written in 1836. Narcissa Whitman and her husband, Marcus, were the first family to travel to Oregon in a covered wagon. Their epic trip was an important event in American history, as Narcissa and a friend became the first white women to travel across the Rockies. This resource is referenced in the EDSITEment lesson titled "If You Were a Pioneer on the Oregon Trail." Less
