Chronicling the Trail of Death: Part 27

Saturday, 27 Oct. 1838

Diary of William Polke

“At sunrise the ferry boats were busily plying from shore to shore. As fast as the emigrants reached the southern bank they were hurried on their journey. At two o’clock the party were all over the river, and hastened to join the front of the emigration. At four o’clock the front of the party reached our encampment at Little Schuy Creek, eight miles from last night’s camp.”
