This is a 24 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Western Expansion in the United States - Pioneer Women. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
By the year 1869 when the first transcontinental railroad was finished, over 350,000 pioneers had taken the Oregon Trail to start a new life. Many of these were women and most were accompanied by children.
These women would see and experience hardship like none they had ever imagined and in the process conquer or be broken by the trail west. Women who headed west learned quickly that there was much more to life than teas and visiting.
Through journals that many left behind, we know that most would do it again.……This was their life.
The presentation covers the following:
Furniture & Heirlooms
Arrival & Home Building
