Pioneer life has a special canning in American. In less than 300 years, civilization spread across a vast continental wilderness . From the first Landings in Virginia and Massachusetts in the early 1600’s.
Most pioneers were willing to face toil and hardship for the sake of opportunity. Carve homes out of the wilderness. Many went almost empty –handed to the frontier. They traveled light and arrived with only an ax and a rifle. Others carried heirlooms and farming tools. Some took seeds corn and orchard shoots, cattle, hogs, and poultry
In the Great Migration, which began after the war of 1812. The American frontier offered political freedom and economic opportunity. In the west, you could own your land and work for your own future. For many people the west mean new opportunities.
The first political organization on the frontier was the territorial government, with officials appointed by the President.
When an area had a large enough population, they could seek statehood.
They had to have 60,000 people to make a state.
