Americans have always been a nation on the move. There were many reasons that brought them here, and once they were here they didn’t stop. Something “out west” always seemed to beckon them. In this class, we will study the major trails used for migration, and the ethnic groups that predominately used those trails. Also included are major waterways, such as rivers and canals, that enabled people to move swiftly to their next destination. The class will finish with a case study showing the reverse migration of one of Peggy’s families, and the use of census and court records used to track the family back to its first landings in America.
