EPISODE SUMMARY FROM THE HISTORY CHANNEL:
After the Treaty of Paris is signed in 1783 and the new American nation is born, a vast continent lies to the west of the mountains, waiting to be explored. This land is not empty – Native American Indians are spread across the land mass, as are Spanish colonists and French explorers. The conquest of the West by pioneers and trailblazers is a story marked by courage and hardship. Armed with knowledge from hardened mountain men like Jedediah Smith, millions of Americans keep heading westward in the hopes of claiming lands and finding prosperity. Their journeys by wagon train are fraught with danger, but the allure of adventure, opportunity and economic gain is strong. While some struggle to create new lives on the frontier, others are rewarded with riches as hundreds of thousands of people rush to mine California’s gold in the mid-19th century. America now stretches from “sea to shining sea.” The consequences for Native Americans on the plains are severe.
