The same spirit called settlers in wagon trains along the Oregon Trail and to California in search of gold. The spirit of the West would forever change our history and our culture as a nation.

    The road to the writing of the Declaration of Independence was wrought with danger. Despite the risk of imprisonment and the impending threat of death, a handful of colonists spoke out against tyranny. They fought against the laws and taxes that plagued them.
