One road to America's Manifest Destiny was a rough and difficult journey along the Oregon Trail. Winding through streams, along rivers, up mountains, and through deserts, the Oregon Trail was traveled by hundreds of thousands of settlers who were heading to the Oregon Territory and other points west to begin a better life. At the end of the road was cheap, fertile farmland-one more step in the creation of a nation that would stretch from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans.
