“Go West Young Man”

Pioneers Travel West

Pioneers Travel West

We Americans began as travelers and outdoors people. Our ancestors left their birth countries and journeyed to America with low odds of surviving. It was expected that many in the family would perish and even the hardiest of the bunch would live short lives. Despite these odds, we still headed out and lived off the land. In many cases, shortly after surviving the trip to America we started heading West.

“Washington is not a place to live in. The rents are high, the food is bad, the dust is disgusting and the morals are deplorable. Go West, young man, go West and grow up with the country.” –Horace Greeley in the mid-1800s.

We kept diaries as we moved west. Lewis and Clark documented our path to the Pacific coast so that everyone would know what to expect. Pioneers shared their travel journals through letters with relatives moving Westward.

Our journals primarily insured us that we would not be forgotten after we were gone.
