6 POSSIBLE COSTS DURING THE JOURNEY. Some people drowned in rivers.pg20 and 22 (Oregon Trail) People stand to gain more land and food and water. They really want freedom and they really don’t want slavery. People in back then who travel in the Oregon trail lost their home and some of those people lost their life and they lost their life by climbing high mountains and by crossing raging rivers. They kind of lost some really helpful things.

7 KEY LAND MARKS SODA SPRINGS: THE OREGON TRAIL STOPPED AT THE SODA SPRING AND THE SODA SPRINGS IS LOCATED ALONG A SHORT CUT IN THE TRAIL OF THE MAIN ROUTE TO FRONT HALL. EMIGRANTS USED THE POOLS OF WATER FOR MEDICINAL AND BATHING PURPOSES. MANY PIONEERS AND THEIR ANIMALS BECAME SICK WHEN THEY DRANK TOO MUCH OF ALKALI WATERFROM THE SPRING. FORT LARAMIE: SOME PEOPLE WHO TRAVELED AT THE OREGON TRAIL STOPPED AT THE FORT LARAMIE TO GET MORE SUPPLIES OR TO GET MORE WAGONS SO THEY CAN PUT THEIR HEAVY STUFF OR EXTRA STUFF IN IT. FORT HALL: EARLY EMIGRANTS ON THE OREGON TRAIL USUALLY ABANDONED THEIR WAGONS AT THE FORT AND CONTINUED ON FOOT WITH THEIR ANIMALS. BUT IN 1843 DR.MARCUS WHITMAN,WHO HAD ESTABLISHED A MISSION NEAR WALLA WALLA,WASHINGTON LED A WAGON TRAIN WEST WARD FROM THE FORT. FROM THEN ON,MIGRATIONS ALONG THE TRAIL INCREASED AS THE PIONEERS COULDNOW TRAVEL ALL THE WAY TO OREGON TRAIL WITH THEIR WAGONS AND POSSESIONS.
