It’s time to hit the old dusty trail and head out west! Do you have what it takes to make it to Oregon? Can your wagons ford the river? Or will you die of dysentery? In this class, we’ll traverse the Oregon Trail together and explore America’s obsession with westward expansion in the mid-19th century. From manifest destiny and notions of striking it rich, to homesteads and pioneers, let’s see where the trail leads us on this journey into America’s rugged past.Please note: Each ticket includes one happy hour drink, or a non-alcoholic drink, of your choice. Drinks and mingling will take place from 6:30pm-7:00pm, and the class itself will run from 7:00pm-8:00pm. Students will also receive 10% off dinner at Nox the day of class.
