Still image from The Oregon Trail: One Family's Journey

Journal entries and reenactments create a sense of what traveling on the Oregon Trail was like for one family. After readying the wagon with carefully chosen supplies, they leave with high spirits. They are, however, soon faced with boring routine, hardships, and danger. Major landmarks and a succession of forts help mark the journey until they arrive in Oregon City.
