Why did they go
Impact on Native Americans
Impact on different groups of people
The Oregon Trail was good for the pioneers because they were looking for a new start and they didn't know that at one point in time they would be an important part of American history. They met many new groups of people and got help and helped each other. And it impacted them because it let them restart their lives and create a new future.
Impact on our Nation
The Oregon Trail affected our nation by leaving ruts in the trail they used and influenced many more people to restart and move from their old state. With everyone leaving their old cities and towns there was then empty ghost towns and vacant cities left where people used to live.
Why Go? (Subtopic)
Key people/individuals or groups of people
The Oregon trail included pioneers from the east such as New York all the way to Illinois and they all set travel to the Oregon Trail for a new future and better fields for planting and farming.
It was clear and meant to be for the pioneers that god wanted them to move west and settle in Oregon and California. Also that they needed a new start to their lives.
