Movement
These people took wagons all the the way there loaded with things such as milk cows that followed the wagon, 200 lbs.flour, pans, 150 lbs. sugar, ten lbs. of coffee, 20 lbs. sugar and 10 lbs. of salt and other kitchen equipment. These wagons were pulled by oxen. Oxen is a wired animal that they used because horses were to expensive and oxen can last long with little feed and they only needed two to pull a wagon.
Along the way
Along the way was trouble the Indians kept attacking. The Indians attacked because they seen how people kept dieing of Cholera a deadly disease, accidental gunshot wounds and really poor sanitation, so they decided they are week and busy with the sick people and can sneak up and steel all of their stuff. Well they didn't let that happen but they did give them little things to keep them away like fake maps to gold. When the indians realized the map was fake they went after them but the they were at the little Whitman mission stop.
