Journal of Travels on the Oregon Trail in Rumer, Thomas A. Spokane, WA: Arthur H. Clark Company, Unruh, John D. Significance The Oregon Trail is the predominant symbol of American westward expansion in the Nineteenth Century, a period of Manifest Destiny when the nation realized its dream of stretching from ocean to ocean.
