Soaking with color and imagery this panoramic bird's eye view of the northwestern portion of America portrays the famed Oregon Trail that led pioneers and settlers from Missouri to the great Oregon Territory in the mid-19th Century.
Several other trails including that of Humboldt, Applegate, Bozeman, and the start of the Santa Fe Trail are also included within the map. Early frontier settlements such as Ft. Sutter, Virginia City, Ft. Vancouver, Ft. Walla Walla, Oregon City, Ft. Boise, Ft, Bridger, and Ft, Laramie can be found along the way. The map is surrounded by a decorative border that includes portraits of important American figures, scenes of life along the trail, seals of states that would one day be founded along the trail, and wagon trains above and below.
