Oregon Trail Diaries

What was life really like on the Oregon Trail?

Presented by The History Detectives Club

Come join us and find out about what life was really like on the Oregon Trail. We will be searching primary sources.

What are they?



Primary sources are created by witnesses or recorders who experienced the events or conditions being documented. Often these sources are created at the time when the events or conditions are occurring, but primary sources can also include autobiographies, memoirs, and oral histories recorded later.
