  • Homeseekers were drawn out to the midwest by posters and broadsides such as this one. People of all diverse backgrounds, religious beliefs, and cultural differences came to the western US.
  • Railroad companies and western promoters produced various types of advertising to boost travel to the west. Promoting economic success, community development, and agricultural business
  • Visualization of the west was grandious in publications to travelers and settlers. Pamplets, mailings, and brochures have been put together in museums as collections from the past.
  • Illustration riverboat and barge near a dock and town on the Kansas and Missouri Rivers. Rare engraving appeared in 1854 by Charles Anderson Dana. The landscape is quite luxurious being so close to the river’s edge.
  • Photo of a classroom in Emporia, KS at the Kansas State Teachers College. Students are dressed in formal clothing gathered in a circle while teachers are observing. Christmas time 1900.
  • Family home at Christmas time. Formally dressed children are gathered at the base of the tree admiring the toys received.
  • Advertisements for Nicodemus, KS encouraged African-American emigration. The settlement of the town ocurred during the Exoduster period after the Civil War in 1877
  • The power of a few people and a safe haven developed into a township devoted to African-Americans. W.H. Smith lived for 3 years in Solomon County, long enough to lay claim to the new bustling community.
  • Chinese emigrants gathered in the hold of the steamship “Alaska” enrout to the United States. Differences in language, clothing, cultures will determine how Americans will percieve them. Emigrants often become frustrated with freedoms and traditions of American citizens.
  • Questions that can be discussed about different groups that live in communites all over the western US.
  • Girl’s trip out! These ladies seem very happy to be together. It can be very likely that they are longtime friends or they might have just met and are posing for their first trip together. Traveling in a big group or as single person can have many starting points, but does the trip always turn out the way we want?
  • Then we come across the intolerance of immigrants that move to our communities. There can be many reasons for not wanting new citizens to a township. Conflict of interests in Economy, Government, Religion, and Education to name a few.
  • Personal notes, situations, and experiences can determine the answers to these questions.
