If you are a history buff, if you’ve wondered what it would be like to be a pioneer, if you want to trace the trail that brought your great-grandpa to California, then you will enjoy the videos produced by the Oregon-California Trails Association.
Their videos are collected on this YouTube page. You can learn about John Bidwell, Sapling Grove, and the First Wagon Train to California.
You can see several videos on African-American pioneers who helped to blaze the trails, like one about Hiram Young, wagon maker.
You can watch their latest on the Butterfield Overland Stage.
The collection is growing all the time as they roll out a new video every week. Subscribe and enjoy new videos from the people who know the overland trails.
