Gold Rush Emigrants
Laden with Firearms
Mailing of Letters Is
By Dr. James C. Olson
Supt.. Slate Historical Society
I have frequently discussed in
this column the diaries kept by
overland emigrants, making heir
way in wagons across the plains
to California, Oregon and Utah,
as sources of information on the
early history of Nebraska. Many
emigrants also wrote letters
along the way, and often these
were published in the newspapers
back home. A recently published
book—“California Emigrant Let
ters”, by Walker D. Wyman—
contains a collection of these
epistles from the gold rush, many
of them written from what is now
Letter writing was difficult.
As one emigrant wrote from near
Chimney Rock, June 3, 1849, “in
the first place we have iust as
much labour to do as keeps us
constantly busy, and in the next
place a fellow must tuck himself
up on the ground, in the open
air, with his legs crossed like a
tailor’s and write on his lap.”
Once a letter was composed,
the problem of getting it mailed
was apt to be even more difficult.
Occasionally a returning emi
grant could be persuaded to carry
letters back to the states for
mailing, but the surest way was
to leave them at a military post.
Ft. Kearney in central Ne
braska was the first such estab
lishment encountered by travel
ers after they jumped off from
the Missouri river, and many a
letter was mai ed from there.
From they? letters we can
obtain good descriptions of eas
tern Nebraska and of the emigra
tion as it appeared when once fair
ly out on the plains. As the writer
said, Ft. Kearney was “an excel
lent point from which to see all
that is desirable to be seen,” as
all the roads unite before reach
The gold rush looked this way
to one observer at Ft. Kearny,
May 18, 1849:
“Every state, and I presume al
most every town and county in
the United States is now repre
sented in this part of the world.
Wagons of all patterns, sizes,
and descriptions, drawn by bulls,
cows, oxen, jackasses, mules and
horses, are dayily seen rolling a
long towards the Pacific, guard
ed by waking arsenals. Arms of
all kinds must certainly be scarce
in the States, after such a drain
as the emigrants must have made
upon them. Not a man but what
has a gun or revolver or two.”
A letter written from the fort
on June 19, reports: “The cry is .
still they come. Five thousand
and nintey-two wagons at sun
down last night had moved past
this place toward the gold regions
of California, and 1,000 more are
still behind, I think.”
