About this website
This website was made so that more people would know about westward expansion. In 1849 the Gold Rush was ending. Americans from the east started to pack up and leave to the plains. The trails would be rough and life would be hard. But many went for a chance to have a better life. A big part of westward expansion was the Transcontinental railroad. One main problem that plains people ran into was the Native Americans. Another problem was the lack of important materials, like wood and water. This website was made by Cam T.
