3: Jumping of cities The first section of the Oregon Trail was a easy hike. families would load their wagons and start up that section. Once most people got to the sharp turn in the trail that would take its way to the north, most people at that point would unload their wagons and stay in what they called "Jumping Off Cities" because the trail was too hard of a trek. Some of the jumping off cities were Independence, West Port,St. Joseph,Omaha, and Council Bluffs.
4: Hardships Walking 2000 miles barefoot was no sweat. Try hauling a wagon filled with most of your essential supplies accross a river. To add to that part, most of the wagons didn't have safety features which would often lead to accidents.
5: Women on the Trail Women on the Oregon Trail were expected to put the family welfare above their own being. Women would have to do all their own chores (A lot more than the men) and tend to everyone else's needs. Men were unwilling to do anything thought to be women's work. Women had no voice in family decisions. If the man of the family had made up his mind to go there was no argument. The most the women could do in attempt to stop the trip was to postpone. it.
6: Cholera The most deadly disease on the Oregon Trail was one called cholera.There was no cure for cholera. Often when a healthy person was diagnosed with cholera they would die within a few hours. Other Diseases Other dieseases would include smallpox, flus, colds, diphtheria, TB,infections, and whooping cough.
