The Road to Oregon (Lone Travel, or Travel in Groups of a Few, as Andy Had Known it, Was Practically a Thing of the Past)
Gift of Ruth Koerner Oliver
Although diaries written by women on the Oregon Trail often record hardships, later paintings of the subject present a more optimistic view. In this painting, the men walk while the women ride, giving a more protected role to the women. In actuality, women often walked because the wagons were heavily loaded.
