The Western Wagon Train: Part-Two, Life on the Trail
[/size]

Hear from those who traveled the trail as to what life really was like in a wagon train. How did they 'circle the wagons' or what was the daily routine like? How did they make repairs to keep the wagons rolling?

Forget the Myth; This Trip Required True Grit!

In the previous article, I spoke of western emigrant routes, wagons and the way they were packed with life's essentials. But, what was life really like in a pioneer wagon train? Today's docents and screen writers spin yarns of dirty people, ignorant of their own hygiene who were also illiterate, clueless, cowardly, sheep-like followers who played the opposite to the brave mountain man who scornfully resented their greenhorn ways.
