We will explore the Oregon, California and Santa Fe pioneer trails that made their way westward across Kansas and beyond. We'll examine the Butterfield Overland Stage Line and others that opened Kansas and the western territories to settlement. But expansion was not without hardships, adventures,endeavors and inventions, which helped the pioneers travel west. We'll review those, too, and the conflicts with Native American peoples, the Spanish,Mexican and British governments that also had strong claims and interest in the American West. Join us as we travel to see some of the remains of the old trail via video and photos.
