Pioneer Day: A Map of the Mormon Trail

With Pioneer Day approaching, here are a few resources. First, a map of the pioneer trail. This isn't exceedingly beautiful, but it is copyright free. (There is also a more modern copyright-free picture at Wikipedia (Mormon Trail)). This is from the Deseret Evening News, July 24, 1897, slightly retouched.

And here are a few random posts, one from each family line, with some connection to Pioneer Day to celebrate the occasion:

Tanner: The Tanner Family Crosses the Plains
Morgan: The Morgan Family
Wessman: The First House Built in Utah
Glade: The James Glade Video

Happy Pioneer Day!
