Overland Trails: The Children on the Trail

 

November 1, 2017



The public is invited to attend the presentation, “Overland Trails: The Children on the Trail” on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Cheyenne County Visitors Center, 658 Glover Rd in Sidney. The event is sponsored by Cheyenne County Family Community Education and Humanities of Nebraska.

With more than 352,000 emigrants traveling the Oregon, Mormon or California Trails, one in five were under the age of 16. Many of those youths kept journals. This program discusses how these children traveled and relates some of the stories from their journals.

Presenter Renae Hunt is a native Nebraska farm girl who presents hands-on living history programs.
