Who amongst us has not wondered what it was like for America’s leaders to rest on the open ground of the western high plains on a starlit night and to hear wolves wail in the range? To walk in the footsteps of these males and females today is to look their experience and to feel their purpose and guts.
National historical tracks help us recreate this special chapter in American history when, starting more than 170 years back, some 500,000 emigrants made their method overland to the far western edge of the continent. Their decision which resulted in 12 new states signing up with the Republic in between 1840 and 1890, all west of the Mississippi River.
Congress designates nationwide historical tracks “to protect historic landscapes and notify our curiosity about the past.” Visitors to the Oregon National Historic Trail have more than 350 miles to explore on Wyoming public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). One excellent stretch extends a complete 35 miles entirely on BLM lands– further than many emigrant parties could stroll in a single day. (This poster portrays a portion of that area.).
Thanks to the foresight and devotion of preservation-minded residents and volunteers, the Oregon, Mormon Leader, California, and Pony Express routes are all handled as nationwide historical trails. BLM-managed sections are part of the National Landscape Conservation System. The BLM is pleased to translate the terrific westward migration, and other considerable elements of American history, as caretaker of more miles of nationwide historical tracks than other federal agency.
A limited number of classic posters are readily available at BLM state workplaces in both postcard and poster formats. Requests for paper posters can likewise be sent out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please consist of the word POSTER in the subject line and supply your name, mailing address, and the number and kind of poster. Requests are restricted to 5 posters per recipient.
