This gallery features historic and contemporary scenes along the MO-KS-CO-(OK)-NM routes of wagon-based traders from 1821 to 1879. US soldiers used the Trail to seize Santa Fe in 1846 during the Mexican War. A railroad ended the trail era.

The image arrangement is east-to-west. One route went through CO. The other route, the Cimarron Cutoff through the OK panhandle, appears at the end. Santa Fe images are in a separate city gallery.

This gallery is an early stage of development, without material from MO or eastern KS.

These images are only offered here. The copyright watermark does not appear.
