...A Mother’s Day On The Oregon Trail Aryanna Walker HIS/110 April 5, 2012 William Deberry A Mother On The Oregon Trail Date: July 17th 1847, my husband, 3 kids and I have been on the Oregon Trail for just over 4 month and nearly 2500 miles. We were told that we would get 640 acres in the Willamette valley from the Organic Law of Oregon (Smith, 1998). We will find out in the morning. I am extremely excited for this is the last night before we get there. We left Virginia in March. My husband said that we did this to find a better life out here. He said that we would not have to worry about money. We will be able to grow and hunt everything we need. Any thing we cannot grow or hunt, we can tread for with the Indians or the other settlers. We are not alone on this trip. My husband talked three of my brothers in to coming along with us and they brought their families. My eldest brother has a wife and five older boys much older then my three young daughters. The middle brother has wife and four older children, three boys and a girl.

We started this journey in Missouri back in November and now we are entering March and the weather has improved finally. I can’t wait to reach our new home place and get settled. I was not thrilled about making this move in the beginning because I had to leave everything behind that meant anything to me. I had to leave my family behind because my parents are not in good health and would not have survived the trip. Many people lost their lives during the trip from the excessive cold weather, diseases, lack of food, and just the pain of having left everything behind (A&E, 2013). Some people just could not handle the trip because it was just too hard. The extreme cold and snow through the winter was more than some people could take (A&E, 2013). This trip down the Oregon Trail was more than most people expected and harder than some could handle. We did not expect the weather to be this bad because we were moving west. We had thought the weather would be better than the Midwest. I guess I did not take traveling through the Rocky Mountains into account (Fuller, 2013). It was so hard keeping up with the laundry and things in the bitter cold, having to wash those clothes in water that kept my fingers cold and icy! Having to make sure they were near a fire to dry...
