It’s 1850 and people are moving west! Pick one of these three characters below and make a sales
pitch as to why people should join in the western movement.

The American Politician
You’re an established politician in the U.S. government who is concerned about securing the
west for American democracy. Draw or paint a poster or flyer that would convince people to
travel west and settle the new lands.

The Wagon Train Leader
Advertise in the local newspaper about how you’re forming a wagon train. Explain what trail
you’re taking, where you’re going, why you’re the best leader for the job and why other settlers
should form your wagon train. Also, don’t forget to include other advertisements and an article
or two about the events that were happening at the time!

The New Mayor
You’ve just become the mayor of a city or town out West. Create a pamphlet explaining to
people why they should settle in your town. Remember to pick a name and location of the town.

As savvy business-minded people make sure that you advertise well. Your final product should
have these check boxes in mind.
